Shopping Centre


The role of town planners in developing shopping centres is an essential one. By taking the time to consider all aspects of the development process, our town planners at Ultimate Planning Solutions are able to create attractive and vibrant centres that provide a great shopping experience for everyone. Through careful consideration and collaboration with local authorities and key stakeholders, our team can make sure that the centre meets the current expectations sought by the planning scheme for development in a centre zoning; while also providing an enjoyable shopping experience for customers. 

Providing a personalised service that is tailored to the needs of our clients is the goal of our boutique town planning consultancy.

As part of the design process our team will help you navigate through Council requirements so that all matters specific to your property are appropriately addressed to ensure Council approval for your Shopping Centre.

Requirements to consider:

  • Increased traffic
  • Carparking needs
  • Visual amenity
  • Signage
What are the Council Requirements relevant to my Application? 
Although each application will be different, common Council requirements to consider when applying for a Shopping Centre includes: 

Carparking Requirements

Depending on the location of your property your business will be subject to off street carparking requirements for your customers. Do you know how to calculate the parking requirements for your property based upon the location, use and size of your business? Be sure you are meeting all Council requirements and allow Ultimate Planning Solutions to take the guesswork out of your development application.

Visual Amenity

As Shopping Centres are usually large with multiple shopfronts visible from the street Council will require all details of the outward appearance of structures and signage associated with advertising. Make sure that you have included all the details required by Council by having your development application prepared by Ultimate Planning Solutions.

What is the Process? 

Our 6-step method streamlines the process for your project application. Each step is designed to ensure that your approval is achieved quickly and efficiently.
