Mark got us approval from VCAT for a subdivision application that was previously refused by the Council. His submission was outstanding, very detailed and convincing. He listened closely to what we tried to achieve and delivered meticulously. He was also happy to point us to the right resource for our research. We highly recommend St-wise’s service.
Mark is quietly understated but got across the detail and picked the key issues to address in our planning application very quickly. He and Mandy managed the process with Council with care diligence and respect – an approach that paid off with unexpectedly great results in our case. Would definitely use them again
Mark and Mandy were very professional and responsive in all their work to facilitate getting council permits over the line. I have used their services on two separate occasions and look forward in working together again in the near future. Thank you both for all your work in making the impossible possible.
Very pleased with the expertise and advice provided by Mark & Mandy. Grateful to have them guide our plans through Council. Calm and measured – which we appreciated. Excellent outcome achieved considering the Heritage Overlay for our site.
Mark’s experience and guidance throughout the entire VCAT process gave me confidence in what was a very uncertain period of time.
The suggestions he offered and his involvement with all parties made it clear he was on top of everything, and come hearing day he was able to put a strong case forward securing a fantastic outcome. I am very glad to have had the pleasure of working with Mark, and would recommend him to anyone in a similar situation.
From the initial phone call through to meeting face to face, the service provided was outstanding. The amount of knowledge including a focussed directional plan was managed with great aplomb, leading to an extremely favourable outcome.
Highly recommend the service especially for those who are seeking a thoughtful and logical approach to any situation…..thanks again Mark.
I recently used the services of St-wise to prepare a report on my behalf for my planning application, and then later as my advocate during a VCAT hearing. I was very impressed with the thoroughness of their research, and the substance and clarity of their written and verbal submissions, and I’d be very happy to recommend their services to others
Hi Mark, I wanted to send you a quick email to thank you so much for the win today at VCAT. Andrew gave me the run down of how it played out and said you were fantastic. Very much appreciated.
St-wise delivered in every aspect of our remit with high quality advice and the quality of their council submission. The Council application process was seamless as a consequence of the quality of their work. We recommend them highly.
Mark & Mandy, what can I say apart from Huge Thank You! Mandy, I am amazed by your organisational skills. Your prompt responses and timely actions in VCAT matters have made this process pleasant. Mark, your guidance in this matter from a very early stage in this project has immensely contributed to the success. Your professional, calm and composed approach has only made it easier for us to go through this daunting process at VCAT.
I cannot recommend Mark enough. He was so informative and thorough when assisting us with our town planning application. He went above and beyond to complete the report in only a few days. Any further questions I had, he or Mandy were always there to help. I am so grateful I found them online. They are affordable given their extensive wealth of knowledge and experience. Very kind individuals who are a joy to speak with. Look no further than St-wise!
Dear Mark & Mandy, I am writing to express my gratitude for the professional assistance I received during the course of our application above. You guys have gone over and above and I am delighted with the simplicity and ease in which the matter has been handled. Great work and thanks
Highly recommend Mandy and Mark. They helped with all three Little Place Projects. Very approachable but also professional. Thank you!
