Negotiating the Planning minefield. Landing a Planning Permit, of late, is beginning to feel like a game of cat-and-mouse. Not only is it a time-consuming process, failure at this crucial hurdle has a major impact on a Practice’s future workload (and finances).

This CPD event will examine various tips for negotiating successfully with councils, present case studies of successful outcomes with Council and/or VCAT and reflect on what we can include in planning drawings to smooth the process through.
