"The planning and control of the construction, growth, and development of a town or other urban area."

Town planning involves the control of both existing and new developments. Before a building permit can be issued, planning permission needs to be secured from the local government or state government authority to ensure that the planned project meets planning criteria.

The Town Planning function is varied. Development Solutions Victoria assist their clients in obtaining planning permission for proposed developments. This may be as simple as preparing and lodging planning applications with the appropriate planning authorities, or as complex as managing a contested development through appeals and the court system.
