Our Planning Permit and Planning Law Services

Best Hooper has an outstanding reputation in town planning law, environmental law and local government law.

Our lawyers understand planning law and environmental regulations and processes. We have an intricate knowledge of how local government works and can therefore guide our clients through potentially costly and time-consuming procedures such as applying for, reviewing, or changing planning permits in municipalities across Melbourne.

Our lawyers regularly appear before the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) and Planning Panels Victoria as advocates in matters concerning Melbourne planning permits and planning scheme amendments. This provides a cost-effective service for our clients and ensures continuity in case management. For large and complex matters, we can discuss the option of retaining counsel.
