Find Information here about my Town Planning Consultancy Services

I am a qualified Town Planner with 24 years experience and I operate throughout Victoria, Australia on any new development projects that require town planning permissions from a Local Council.

Please contact me by lou.wolfers@bigpond.com if you wish to contact me.

I am a tertiary qualified Town Planner with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Urban Planning along with a Graduate Diploma in Urban and Regional Planning.  

As a private planning consultant I have been involved with a number of major development projects. 

 Recent achievements include my personal handling of a number of large scale and significant planning proposals to approval including:

  • TX Australia P/L, Mt Dandenong (in relation to Critical Infrastructure protection, bushfire mitigation and vegetation management issues) along with the investigation of planning related issues at other sites in Victoria. Investigations and preparation of formal submission responses in relation to the recent DPCD State Planning Policy Framework Review, the P&E Act 1987 review, the Bushfire Royal Comission; along with conducting investigations and responding to similar issues in NSW in relation to their State initiated LEP Planning Scheme reviews at various municipalities);
  • Wilson Transformer Co (major extensions) - Springvale Road, Glen Waverley ($20 Million);
  • Rand Transport (freezer warehouse) - Fulton Rd, Derrimut ($16 Million);
  • Sleepyhead Pty Ltd (foam bed manufacturing plant) - Foleys Road, Deer Park ($8.5 Million);
  • Orica Australia - Demolition of contaminated buildings/site clean up at Deer Park and Yarraville in Melbourne;
  • Healthbridge Hospital Hawthorn - Redevelopment of new Womens Private Hospital ($25 Million);
  • Bowens Timber - Whole site re-development at Warrigal Road Oakleigh ($3.5 Million);
  • The Bays Hospital expansion, 262 Main Street, Mornington ($10 Million);
  • Warringal Private Hospital expansion, 216 Burgundy St, Heidelberg ($49 Million);

Some of these projects have required extensive and ongoing high level consultation with Senior Management, CEO’s and Administrators in a variety of Local Government municipalities and including some additional consultation at the State Government level.

I have extensive knowledge and experience in dealing with the Planning & Environment Act 1987, its regulations, and related VPP based planning scheme provisions anywhere in Victoria. 

I also regularly make formal presentations to VCAT in Application for Review hearings and mediations.
