Planning

SLR’s team of highly experienced planners work in partnership with our clients to deliver the results that they need, through all aspects of the development process.

Overview

Depending on your requirements, our team will help guide you to the most appropriate approval pathway for your project. We provide specialist advice in Statutory Planning, Environmental Impact Assessments, Strategic Planning and Social Planning across all industries.

Our integrated knowledge and industry experience provide clients with robust market sensitive advice which removes obstacles to development and enables you to maximise value and operational advantage. We know where additional permits and licences may be required and will work with you to minimise risk of those approval processes on project delivery.

Our planners work as part of a multi-disciplinary team to deliver successful outcomes for our clients, with the ability to contribute at all stages of a project lifecycle from project scoping to delivery.
