Clients who have benefited from
our efficient application process:

  • I often have the need for fast, accurate town planning advice for my clients. For many years, I have been relying on the professional services of Lorenzo Rigoni and the team at Terrain Consulting. It is my job to advise my clients to what they can do to extract the best yield from their property or from properties they are looking to purchase. The first place I head is to the team at Terrain.
    Philip – Director – Re-Define
  • I really appreciated your guidance and help during the VCAT hearing process from the beginning to the decision. If I have to go through it again I will consider no one but you without any hesitation. Your knowledge on these matters, your calm and professional attitude, the ease you communicate and establish rapport with people were very confidence building. I recommend anyone who is planning to go through a development to talk with Lorenzo and his team as early as possible.
    Michael – Ivanhoe
  • After spending much more time than I would have imagined I almost had to abandon a project with a volume so called turnkey builder. This builder had the pricing come in way above what was first discussed, and after much disappointment I contacted Laurie. Laurie’s knowledge and down to earth approach was exactly what I was looking for. Laurie also referred me to an Architectural practice who have the dual occupancy experience I so desperately need. After only two meetings, I am well on the way to getting fresh architectural plans drawn up and I look forward to having these plans to council within 6-7 weeks.

  • On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you both for your professional conduct and the hard work you have put in for us to get the sub division. It’s been a long and stressful journey and we could not have asked for two better people to have onboard. Again, a big thank you and greatly appreciated.
    Chris – Greenvale
  • I met with Laurie Rigoni from Terrain Consulting Group for an informal meeting to seek advice about a property I co-own, and its potential for sub division. Having no knowledge of such matters, Laurie’s warm, friendly manner, breadth of knowledge and professional approach was comforting and appreciated. I would not hesitate in recommending Laurie to anyone who is interested in developing a property and is unsure about what can be achieved and how to go about it.
    Anna – Brunswick
  • Thanks for sending through the VCAT approval. I would like to extend our thanks for your efforts and diligence in preparing and representing our case at VCAT. This is a fantastic result and should be a great project for our team.
    Jim – Northcote
