From Town Planning Applications to Assessment and Approval

Strategic solutions, Creative thinking

Town Planning Noosa and Sunshine Coast

“Russell’s knowledge and leadership to educate and engage on all town planning and development matters clearly demonstrates his passion and ability for getting it right.”
Raul Weychardt, Director Planning Noosa Shire


A common challenge for those with town planning or development projects is navigating government planning schemes and the application process. It’s time-consuming and requires a thorough understanding of the industry language, appropriate forms, and necessary timelines.

The complexity of these processes is similar across all local governments, whether you’re submitting a development application on the Sunshine Coast or Noosa, appealing a planning decision in Townsville, or conducting an environmental impact study in Sydney, Brisbane or Sippy Downs. RG Strategic can assist with your town planning and development applications throughout Queensland and interstate.

The town planning consultants at RG Strategic are here to ensure your project is assessed and gains approval in a timely manner so you can start growing and bringing in new customers.

With 16 years’ experience in high-level town planning roles for local government and an additional five years working with businesses across Australia, RG Strategic can bring unique insights and expertise to your development project.

Director Russell Green acted as Chairman of the town planning portfolios for both Noosa and Sunshine Coast councils, so he doesn’t just understand council planning schemes — he’s written them. He also understands the strategic framework and constraints of councils, and how to refine and present your development application so it is successful.

Our team of professionals at RG Strategic is respected and informed, with real-world understanding of local government workings, and hands-on experience in assessing a wide variety of development applications across Australia.
