Planning, environment and government

With a whole-project approach, our planning, environment, and government specialists find solutions at all stages of the development process, maximising the development potential of your site. We are experts in navigating the increasingly complex planning process from residential applications through to major projects across a broad range of industry sectors.

Led by Madison Marcus Partner, Paul Jayne, our team works across all jurisdictions, with the benefit of strategic and commercial advice that comes with thorough local knowledge. Our division forms part of a larger dispute resolution division within Madison Marcus, capitalising on clear synergies with our commercial, building and construction divisions.

Our expertise encompasses all aspects of resources development including project development, licensing, contamination and more.

We have extensive experience in matters involving appeals, prosecutions and enforcement of planning and environmental laws, as well as the granting of easements for services.

Our team has also successfully acted for dispossessed landowners (individuals and businesses) in relation to the compulsory acquisition of land for the purposes of government projects, including challenging the amount of compensation to be paid in some cases.
