Urban Sync About Us
Urban Sync is a town planning and land development consultancy firm. But what does that actually mean? In 1898, at the first international town planning conference in New York, a British planner asked “Are we striving for beautiful people or beautiful cities?” Is urban planning about physical design, he wondered, or about making things easier for the people who live in our towns and cities?
The simple answer is both. Which can make town planning a very tricky affair. Back then, in the wake of the British Industrial Revolution, town planning was driven by architects and public health officials, grappling with rapid urban growth, waste management and other challenges. In modern Australia, town planning is a legal maze, governed by complex federal policies, individual State legislation and local Council planning schemes.
That’s why you need a passionate and experienced town planning consultancy like Urban Sync on your team. You need people who understand how to peel back the layers of confusion, talk you through the jargon and guide you through the planning and approval process to achieve the outcome you want for your project.
