planning

alsoCAN architects excel in using our extensive planning knowledge & 3D skills to model possibilities for your property to arrive at the best architectural design for the site, whether it is a unit development, residential addition, new house or warehouse conversion.

Getting a planning permit can be a frustrating process. We are experienced in arguing the case for the design & negotiating with planners. We look at how we can inventively redesign to satisfy neighbours' & planners' issues while maintaining your requirements in the design.

We received a Planning Permit for an 8 townhouse development. Another designer's development for the same site was rejected by Council, & at VCAT, because the designers didn't make adjustments to deal with planning issues.

Our 3 storey addition to a house in Port Melbourne received a planning permit & has just been completed. At the pre-application meeting the planner told us she thought we'd come up with the best possible solution for the neighbours.

We recently took a 3 unit development to VCAT because the council refused the permit. The Member hearing the case said the high quality development we proposed should be the type of thing council should advocate for & issued a permit.
