Industrial Town Planning Solutions

St-wise has assisted a range of clients in developing properties for industrial use, including warehouses, factories, facilities and public amenities. With a broad understanding of what is required for successfully proposing an industrial development, let us help you increase your chances of completing your project.

Pre-planning Advice

Before you start planning your project, St-wise can provide design recommendations to make the most of the site’s potential while considering how it will affect the surrounding area. Pre-planning can save time down the track, as potential council or community objections can be identified and addressed early.


As representatives for our clients, we can liaise directly with Council on your behalf. We can also assist with organising community consultations where required. Having built a strong and professional reputation with shires across Melbourne, we’ll ensure your project is considered by the relevant authorities within a reasonable time frame.

Planning Permits

If you’re seeking a highly professional Town Planning Report to support your permit application, we can work with you to draft a report that complements your plans, blueprints and drawings. A report may be required by Council to justify why your particular development is an appropriate addition to the existing community.

Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) Appeals

St-wise can assist you with lodging an appeal if a decision isn’t in your favour. We prepare the paperwork, liaise with expert witnesses and present on your behalf to VCAT. When there is a dispute on a planning matter between the developer and Council, or the developer and other stakeholders including neighbours, VCAT can make a final ruling.
