How to turn a Town Planning refusal to a Planning Approval

Medical Centre Project completed by AuArchitecture

A surgeon previously based in the UK had his planning application for a medical centre refused by Monash Council. A different firm was the then Applicant of the refused Town Planning Application.

The surgeon contacted our Founder by phone and then email.

After eight months of negotiations on a new application prepared by AuArchitecture, Monash Council issued a new planning permit. We were then engaged to prepare Building Permit documentation and completed the project in 2018!

A property about to become a lemon is now the specialist clinic the leading Surgeon wanted!

So how did we get it approved and built?

Planning is not about drawing something and fingers crossed hoping for a good outcome- as the previous planning applicant had tried.

Its about knowing the planning regulations, the planning scheme and work out what are the "loop holes" which can be used to argue a better outcome.

We did that and succeeded.

Our detailed drawings were supported by a comprehensive planning report we prepared in house . And we did not wait for the phone to ring. We made the calls, set up follow up planning meetings at Monash and won at the end!

Contact Swarup for your problem planning Application- and if we can get you a better result we will tell you upfront your chances of success.

AuArchitecture will gladly donate  design and planning services  to charitable organisations worldwide. 

We would love to serve you through smart and beautiful  designs for your dream house, dual occupancy, townhouse or apartment projects or commercial and industrial buildings which makes  a difference.

I recall doing a

  • large multi unit  residential design with a sky-street on the fifth level for the kids to play in safety while  creating  a real sense of community living and  

  • a modular home design which grew with the family budget rather like a series of plug in components and 

  • the windmill house with views where each stair landing led to a different view and function and

  • right down to designing and obtaining planning permits for practical traditional designs to meet the family  or developer's budget and objectives.

Our Founder has  worked on hundreds of development sites for dual occupancy and townhouses. He worked on commercial, health, education, retail and leisure projects to name a few other disciplines.

Our professional designs are flexible to suit your vision and realistic to meet your budget.

We advise you must seek legal and financial advice prior to making a commitment on any property development venture. The opinions we provide are general in nature.
