Over his 30-year career Paul has become recognised as a leading expert in assessment of complex development proposals, due diligence and floodplain risk management.

Greg New

“Modern, liveable communities demand that water, sewer, roads, drainage, parks and community facilities are provided in a timely fashion. Decisions about who provides these elements and how they are funded are critical for creating successful places.” 

Greg New is an expert in land use, infrastructure and development contributions planning. His 30-year career stretches across both government and the private sector.

Greg has expertise in preparing and reviewing contributions plans and strategies for State and local government, developers and councils, and in negotiating voluntary planning agreements for these parties. Greg is a leading professional in this area and has prepared papers, guidelines and training courses on the development contribution system.

Over the past 30 years, Peter Lawrence has worked in local and state government, planning consultancies and held senior positions with two major development companies.
