Yes, we can liaise with the council on your behalf and help with rezoning and other town planning matters. Our urban and town planning specialists have decades of experience dealing with town planning from revitalising town centres to developing eco-friendly residential areas. Whether you need to submit a rezoning application or lodge a development application, we can handle it all for you. We’ll make your vision a reality!

Take the headache out of dealing with the council and leave it up to us! Your town planning experts.

You will either need to obtain council permission or a complying development certificate (CDC) to build a granny flat on your property. CDCs allow granny flat builders to bypass council permission which can speed up the building process by a number of weeks or months, however not all granny flats are eligible for a CDC.

At Sorensen Design we’ll take care of all council approvals on your behalf, applying for the appropriate permission to ensure your project can get underway as soon as possible. We design custom granny flats and the permissions required will vary depending on your block of land and your granny flat design.
