Planning

MacroPlan provides a range of planning services from pre-acquisition due diligence, strategic assessment and conceptual planning  through to rezoning and development approval and project implementation.

Our planners work with our in-house economists and analysts (and other consultant experts) to evaluate social, economic and environmental factors that contribute to the success of projects.

Our multi-disciplinary approach delivers outcomes that focus on evidence, identifying development opportunities and optimal project outcomes, and clarifying pathways to achieving development approval.

We have extensive experience in project managing large-scale projects for both the private and public sectors and in representing clients to both state and local government planning authorities.  Our focus on meeting project management milestones and timeframes safeguards the viability of your development proposal.
