2014 is going to be a big year in changes to Planning Schemes all over the State. Many Cities have draft schemes well under way or already published and only waiting on State Government Approval. There are subtle changes in all of the new schemes, ranging from Definitions of Uses to major rezoning to various parcels of land. The changes can be complex so if we can help you in working out the opportunities please email us with your property details and how you would like to develop your land.
