I just wanted to say another huge THANK YOU for all of your help with getting our deck and carport approved. You have no idea how ecstatic we are!!

It was a pleasure to work with you and even after so many people said “there’s no hope”, you still took on our case with a smile and even better you received a YES outcome.

The builder was here this morning and he just shook his head and said “I am really happy for you. Wow, you certainly picked an awesome Town Planning Consultant because no one I have spoken to said you would get it approved … and believe me I spoke to a lot of people about your case”.

Allan, I don’t know what you did to make it happen but all I can say is “thankyou thankyou thankyou. You rock”.

Thank you again Allan for solving the issue for us. Your professionalism and your work ethics were amazing from my point of view. I am sure we will be in need of your assistance in the future for other matters and I can assure you we will be back to you for more business but hopefully, no show-cause notices *(don’t plan to go against city council anyways).

Again thank you very much, Allan. Please go save others.

We needed to arrange the subdivision of a multi Unit dwelling to single-unit dwellings in New Farm.

After one bad experience and many hours trolling the net, I found the Allan Van Planning website.

Before I engaged Allan I fired off numerous research questions, and each time came back a prompt accurate reply.

We then arranged to meet on-site and were straightaway given a detailed breakdown of all costs and each step of the process required, in a very pleasant manner and in easy to understand language. All the contractors that Allan arranged during the process, surveyors etc were also pleasant and straight to the point.

I highly recommend Allan Van If you are looking for a town planner and have in fact already referred him to others, so would be happy to discuss it further.
