Think Planners specialises in the “up front” component of the development cycle.
We have outstanding experience in gaining development approval and rezoning of land across many project types including:
Aged care developments
Residential and master planning
Our services include expertise in compulsory acquisition, the Land Environment Court, independent assessment and peer reviews.
Think Planners is based in Western Sydney, with depth and demonstrable experience in Western Sydney projects. Think Planners has established excellent relationships and a strong understanding of local and state government in the region, and the wider Sydney area.
The Directors of Think Planners foundations are in town planning (Australian and European experience), which has been built upon by years of experience in the delivery of approvals to significant projects. Our core expertise is managing a project from inception, through design and obtaining project consent.
We also specialise in Planning Proposals that deliver changes to planning controls for individual sites and precincts.
Our office also specialises in administering the design excellence competition process.
Think Planners takes an active hands on approach with development projects. We understand the commercial reality of project delivery and work closely with proponents to achieve timely, cost effective, well designed projects.
We understand that the role of a town planning firm is not to simply write a report, but to assist in examining development potential, advocating for a great outcome and staying connected from lodgement to approval.
Think Planners operational model is firmly based on the principle that Directors and Managers of the business remain closely involved in the day to day work on current projects.
Unlike many other planning firms, when you engage Think Planners, the people you meet with at the inception of the project, will be the same people who work with you throughout the project, until its final delivery.
