Fulcrum Urban Planning is Melbourne’s leading town planning consultancy.

Our clients understand that the planning system is more than just filling out forms. We deliver accurate, timely and cost effective advice, and work with all stakeholders to deliver the best results. Our approach and services are tailored to meet the needs of the project and the client.

When specialist advice is needed, we have access to and draw on an extensive network of experts including engineers, architects, liquor licensing consultants, lawyers, and heritage professionals.

We are a boutique firm so you will only deal with senior staff. Your work won’t be sub-contracted or undertaken by a junior planner.

We’ve been advising and assisting clients for over 20 years. We know planning inside-out.

Our work and experience extends across a wide range of urban, suburban, regional and rural projects and the type and scope of work typically includes:

  • Navigating the Council planning approvals process.
  • Ministerial approvals.
  • VCAT appeals.
  • Rezonings.
  • Due diligence.
  • Policy analysis.
  • Negotiation, advocacy and project management.
  • Briefing and co-ordination of expert testimony to VCAT and Planning Panels Victoria.
