Urban and Rural Planning

The increasing importance of urban planning (as a niche within the larger town planning practice) has been reflected in several councils around Melbourne, where planning departments have been completely rebranded as “Urban Planning Departments.”

Urban planning in Melbourne typically deals with the planning involved in creating medium and high-density housing, heritage dwellings, buildings, commercial and residential areas.

Rural planning refers to the planning of agricultural land use and land fragmentation in rural areas.

The demand for housing is booming.

Councils, developers, investors, and everyday homeowners are all looking for exciting new opportunities to build new homes, facilities, and infrastructure to meet the ever-increasing demand in Melbourne’s sprawling suburbia.

Urban planning services play a critical role in this effort by coordinating the efforts of property owners and their consultants to ensure that ongoing urban development is carried out sustainably.
