Who We Are
Town planning specialists with broad ranging industry experience across varying sectors and project types
What We Do
Our policy and practice is to negotiate cooperatively between all parties to get the right outcome.
At Maureen Jackson Planning, we can assist you by offering an end-to-end statutory planning service.
Again, it all comes back to respect. We respect you, your goals, and all parties involved. Not only is this approach just good manners, it’s also good business because it generates results.
We enjoy the diversity and challenge of working with a wide range of interesting private and public sector clients throughout Victoria, building long and close relationships and trust within the industry.
Our private sector work has included facilitating residential high rise development, aged care facilities, and mixed use and commercial development. We’ve undertaken a number of due diligence exercises for clients prior to purchase, which has led to an awareness of planning opportunities, risks, and timing of process for potential purchases for large and small scale developments.
We specialise in working with State government agencies including Department of Justice and Community Safety, Court Services, Education, Treasury and Finance, Health and Human Services and Education, over a number of years.
Projects include the following:
Approval of new police stations at Sandringham, Mernda and North Melbourne, with no recourse to VCAT.
Facilitated the planning scheme amendment leading to the approval of the $630 million New Bendigo hospital redevelopment on behalf of the Department of Health and Human Services within a period of 4 weeks.
Achieved approval for a variety of works at Maroondah Hospital, Peter James Centre and Monash Medical Centre.
Provided advice and planning input to gain Ministerial approval for the Marngoneet Annex at Geelong on behalf of the Department of Justice and Community Safety.
Provided advice and review of all tender proposals for the $1 billion Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre in Parkville for the Department of Health and Human Services.
More specifically within the Health sector, we specialise in town planning advice to master planning projects and approval for hospital and medical related uses. Examples include the expansion to Maroondah, Bendigo, Geelong and Monash hospitals.
