town planner taree, council approval NSW

255 days of support and professionalism 


With a tricky townhouse development, my draftsman engaged Tony from Midcoast Planning to assist with lodging my DA to council. We had many challenges along the way - matched with a frustratingly slow council, and Tony was always working with and for me to get my DA approved. 


He dealt with every challenge promptly and handled councils many requests. I truly believe he was as excited as me to finally get the DA approval after 255 days. 


I would highly recommend Tony and Midcoast Planning

Adam Stevenson,  Director, LJ Hooker Old Bar

We are first time builders and Midcoast Planning was recommended to us to smooth the way through a foreign and complex approvals process.

This has been one of the best decisions we have ever made. We were completely unprepared for how complex and confusing the approvals process is and leaned heavily on Tony from Midcoast planning to ensure we didn’t experience undue delays or incur unnecessary costs. 

Tony was an exceptional help to us and without his expertise and open communications we would still be muddling our way through.


We are very happy to recommend Midcoast Planning and would go far enough to say this an essential service for anyone considering building in the region.


Thanks Tony and Midcoast Planning!

Tony is one of those people that you hope you will meet and get together with to guide you through this quite complex maze - that is - building a house.  Dealing with Councils, sourcing the right professionals at the appropriate times can be a daunting time for the inexperienced like us.  Tony made the entire process painless and seamless.

From the very beginning Tony was very clear in what he would and what he wouldn’t do for us, what his fees were and how he would manage the process on our behalf.  He was also quite generous in his advice and answered our questions in a straightforward and simple way even before we had engaged him to work on our behalf.

Our impressions were that Tony had a no-frills approach, knew his business inside out and more importantly, how to negotiate the idiosyncrasies of Council.  We immediately felt as if we were in good hands and his sense of humour added that extra human touch and we felt we had made the right choice with him.

Throughout the process Tony pointed us in the right directions at the appropriate times and kept us informed on progress. His response to our enquiries and questions through the process were clear and promptly addressed.

We are extremely happy with his work on our behalf, his honesty and diligence.  We would have no hesitations in recommending Tony to anyone who is looking at building a home.  Tony will get you through it with a minimum of fuss.

I have had the pleasure of being involved with PDA Planning over several years and several projects. The manner in which Tony and his staff have handled some rather testing situations is testament to his amicable nature and skills. Don't hesitate - if you want the best call PDA.

We could not have done this without your help and you knew just what to do and who to go to for all the information. You saved us alot of headhaches and were always helpful and updated us frequently so we were not left wondering what was happening. I will be more than happy to recommend your services to anyone who I may come across in the future.
