Our Story

Formed in 2016, Property Change is a Melbourne based town planning and property practice.

Property Change itself came from an analysis as to whether we want property to stay the same or change and what way we want it to change. Inspired by Ebenezer Howard, the garden city and the three magnets of change. Change often depends on what we consider to be good/bad in terms of design, the process of change and the power structures of government.

Our directors and Senior Associates entered private consulting after being in local government. This gives them a broad range of experience in statutory planning with expertise in processes surrounding development assessment. 

Skills as a statutory planner allow them to provide advice to clients across a range of regulatory frameworks and development scenarios. This includes project positioning, due diligence, approval strategy investigations and management of an array of planning applications.

Property Change has an excellent record in obtaining approvals through government authorities and has a thorough understanding of the broad range of factors influencing development within the urban planning sphere. Our boutique, yet specialised nature, ensure timely project delivery and best practice outcomes are delivered well within budget.
