Change of Use

A Material Change of Use (previously known as re-zoning) of a property is one of the most common forms of development. Taylor Willis Town Planners is experienced in simple 'house' to a duplex or home office or adding a granny flat. But we also are experienced in the more complex projects of shopping centres or multi storey mixed use towers.


Subdivision of land is the process of splitting property into new lots for sale. Properties can be subdivided either via freehold or community title subdivision. Taylor Willis Town Planners have gained countless approvals for subdivisions & can provide trustworthy advice with regards to your property.


There are so many permits and approvals to get when owing property or operating a business from a premises. These include signage approvals, landscaping approvals, liquor licences, road closure permits etc. We can organise approval of all of these & more! 


Sometimes property owners & business owners aren't aware of the town planning requirements & receive a Show Cause Notice from the Council. These letters contain threats of large fines and enforcement action. We have dealt with hundreds of these cases & can best advise on how to deal with it quickly and cost-effectively.


Often developers come to us with a street address & say 'what is the highest & best use of this property?' We then prepare a report highlighting the rules and regulations affecting the site & the opportunities that exist including the process to achieving them. 

We are actively involved in many relevant industry and business organisations as committee chairs, professional members, industry mentors/advisors etc.  These organisations ensure we are kept well informed and at the forefront of changes in policy as well as opportunities and challenges the development industry will face.
