Wins at VCAT for our Clients!

Andrew Long + Associates expert evidence secures three further wins forPlans-with-Rolls-BW-RSZ-(1).jpg our clients. VCAT have recently announced three decisions that  Cultural Heritage Management Plans (CHMPs) were not required, based on expert evidence prepared by Executive Director, Jonathan Howell-Meurs.

In our experience, CHMPs are often requested unnecessarily at significant cost to small developers, and we have had much success in demonstrating this to the satisfaction of both Council and VCAT. These wins further enhance our profile as Victoria’s leading provider of Cultural Heritage Assessment (CHA) expertise, which is available to all clients faced with the prospect of preparing a mandatory CHMP in order to obtain a planning permit.


For more information on our CHA services and track record, please read our Planning and Aboriginal Cultural Heritage information sheet.
