Expert Witness

The planning approval requirements, timelines and town planner expectations vary by council across Victoria. This creates complexity for town planning applicants and concerned neigbours.

We have extensive experience working with council and resolving disputes to progress projects. 

Our senior architects can consult as the unbiased party in both the defence and dispute of planning applications. 


Specifically, Co-Lab architects can be engaged to:

  • Act as an expert witness at VCAT tribunals
  • Review town planning applications under consideration and consult on objection basis 
  • Compose letters of objection
  • Guide a client through planning mediation.

If you would like to discuss your application, concern or objection please contact us directly.
