Planning and Development in New South Wales comes with a lot of red tape. Let us help you cut through it. Antunes Lawyers can guide you through the highly regulated world of planning and development so that you can start building.

Getting approval to use land is often the first step in making your dream business or home a reality. If you’re planning to build, having a great lawyer on your side could be the difference between getting approved or rejected.

In NSW, the most significant legislation that impacts planning and development is the Environment Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (NSW). This statute establishes a legal responsibility to ensure that land is used in a way that considers the environment and requires proposals for land use to meet strict conditions.

Our lawyers can advise you on Local Environmental Plans and State Environmental Planning Policies, help you obtain approval for demolition, the subdivision of land, or the erection of a building, and even represent you to appeal decisions in the Land and Environment Court.
