Development Applications 

Do you want to subdivide, seek a material change of use, or otherwise invest in or develop your property? If so, the Mackay Regional Council and Queensland Government will likely have something to say about your project. Such projects almost always require development approval (DA). 

At McPeake Town Planning, we know how to make your development application process as seamless and painless as possible. We have a comprehensive knowledge of local regulations and the experience necessary to make them work in your favour. As a family-run business with decades of town planning experience we understand your project is more than a plan, but a dream or an investment. That’s why we treat our clients with the highest level of service and work with them from start to finish to make their project a reality.  

Planning Feasibility

Have a project in mind but not sure if it’s viable from a planning point of view?

McPeake Town Planning has the know-how necessary to guide you and your project toward a successful outcome. Our town planners will support your development project with their expertise in urban and rural projects alike.

While the specifics will depend on your project, a few ways we can assess the feasibility of your project are as follows. Our planners can:

  • Assess your project’s viability from a planning perspective
  • Investigate which planning requirements and regulations apply to your project. Such as those put in place by the Queensland Government or your local council, like the Mackay Region Planning Scheme
  • Investigate the challenges presented by the specifics of your project
  • Supply you with workarounds for those challenges
  • Provide you with advice regarding what other development opportunities may exist

Subdivisions & Reconfiguration of a Lot

Our town planners can help you achieve the height and best use of your property.

Whether that means combining two or more properties into one larger lot, dividing up an old family farm with new boundaries or new lots, or simply getting someone else’s input before making any decisions yourself – we can do it for you.

land Tenure

Does your project involve land that isn’t yours?

We can help you utilise that land. Whether you’re needing an easement, to gain access, a lease, permit, or license we have you covered. Let McPeake Town Planning help you with all your land tenure needs in Mackay and the surrounding regions

You can tell from the moment you speak with James & Heidi this is their passion. Recently they ran a social media campaign sharing all things LOCAL real estate opportunities. We have no hesitation in recommending them and can’t thank them both enough for their support with our current properties for sale.
