“Barry and his team’s ability to make the council process run smoothly is invaluable to architects like myself, because it frees us up from having to manage the process.” – Peter Rass, PRD Architects
At E Planning, we have unparalleled knowledge of the planning and building process.
For over 25 years, we’ve negotiated hundreds of Development Application submissions through local council jurisdictions in Sydney and throughout New South Wales.
Our reputation for providing quality advice is renowned and backed by our solid track record of town planning success stories.
We work across large commercial, industrial and residential projects, through to multi-use developments, private homes, extensions and neighbourhood boundary disputes.
Our team of town planning consultants is passionate about pre-empting problems before they arise. Our recommendations are practical and solutions-focused, so we achieve the best possible outcome for you.
Navigating the process of development can be a complex and time-consuming task. Do your plans meet the zoning requirements, policies and legislation of the local council? Will you get the OK to go ahead?
At E Planning, we manage the entire town planning process on your behalf, from the pre-design stage and drafting plans right through to the submission and negotiation stages. We pride ourselves on our meticulous attention to detail and we’re highly skilled at managing consultants.
Because we understand all aspects of council requirements and deadlines, you can rely on our comprehensive, quality assessments for a smooth process.
We assist clients with a range of services, including: Development Application (DA) processes, BASIX certification, feasibility studies, LEP amendments, Section J certification and Land and Environment Council representation. We also prepare Statements of Environmental Effects (SEE) and assist with Planning Proposals (previously called land rezoning applications).

A modern two-storey boarding house in our town planning Lilyfield project presented a range of challenges for the architect and the E Planning team as they navigated the Development Application process.
No job is too big or too small for the team at E Planners. Why? Because every job presents its own unique challenges, which contribute to the group’s expertise. This is how our town planning expertise for the Mount Kiera project reached success.
