Mason Developments and Red Earth Developments approached Glossop Town Planning with an idea for a townhouse complex.
Glossop Town managed the town planning process, liaising on behalf of the clients with Council, engaged and managed other consultants in relation to the project, and provided planning advice along the way.
In order to meet our clients' timelines, an application for review was lodged under section 79 of the Planning and Environment Act 1987 due to the failure of Melbourne City Council to make a decision within the statutory timeframe.
Glossop Town Planning represented the client at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, which pleasingly resulted in the granting of a permit to the applicant.
Smart Planning is a reform program to make Victoria’s planning system more efficient and accessible. Over the past 20 years, multiple reviews of the planning system have identified ideas and areas for improvement. Planning needed an overhaul and that is what Smart Planning has been doing.
Despite Officer support, the proposal had been refused by Council and had attracted objections from nearby land owners.
Glossop Town Planning was engaged by the Smart Planning team within the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) to develop a code that facilitates small scale secondary dwellings on the same lot as an existing dwelling a residential zone. This code is now known as the Secondary Dwellings Code.

Glossop Town Planning was engaged by the City of Stonnington to review Amendment VC272 which sought to introduce the Hawksburn Village Structure Plan to the Stonnington Planning Scheme.
Glossop Town Planning also presented expert evidence at the Panel Hearing for Amendment VC272.
