Local Government Services

Do you need help in your local council on different matters? We also offer local government services that cover the following areas:


  • Policy and strategy writing: We can draft new policies and strategies or update your existing documents to meet current legislation.
  • Waste management: We have a thorough and up to date knowledge of best and next practice waste management and resource recovery methods to inform your waste management service.
  • Project management: We can help you deliver your project on time and within budget with our experience in project delivery.
  • Locum services: Is there a vacant space in your local council? We offer locum services that allow the function of your department to continue whilst staff are away.


Do you need a neutral third party to help you with negotiation? Does your proposal have objections? At Lifestyle Town Planning, we are passionate about communication to help you to reach consensus and get your project moving. Mediation is effective for complex cases because it ensures that the different players in the planning process reach a mutually acceptable or negotiated outcome to enable your project to proceed. You can trust us to keep your information confidential throughout the mediation process.

Development Advice

We provide an experienced but objective eye that will assess your project to maximise the return, help reduce the town planning complications, and minimise your risk. Our development and planning knowledge will help you in the concept stages before you start to formalise your project. 

Planning Advocacy & VCAT Representation

We provide a professional advocacy and Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal representation service to act on your behalf. Our advocacy services cover the initial assessment stage, lodgement of grounds for appeal, and statement reviews, preparation of VCAT submission, and representation at appeal hearings.
