Need an expert witness at VCAT? Ask the town planning experts.

Director Mark Waldon has represented multiple clients as an expert witness before the Victorian Communal Affairs Tribunal (VCAT) on planning related matters. To strengthen his client’s case, he will compile a detailed report and present it as evidence at the hearing.

Town planning expert witnesses can be cross-examined by opponents, lawyers, VCAT chairpersons and other representatives of the development. They therefore need to be highly knowledgable and well-prepared on the application or matter being heard.

Mark Waldon is highly respected by his peers for being articulate, thorough and persuasive during his appearances as an expert witness.
