Planning, environment and heritage have become increasingly complex areas administered by a number of regulatory authorities, including local government. The applicable legislation and policy framework is challenging for those responsible for its administration as well as for developers and the community more generally.
Historically, McLeods has been recognised for its expertise in planning, environment and heritage. They are among our key practice areas and have been from the start. Our specialists in these areas are recognised as being among the State’s leading practitioners.
In any year, our lawyers provide assistance in hundreds of matters in the planning, environment and heritage areas. With increasing development pressures in both metropolitan and regional areas of the State, planning, environment and heritage will remain core areas of our service.
