Expert evidence

Alexander Urbanism prepares and presents expert urban design evidence. In Victoria, we appear in the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) and at Planning Panels Victoria (PPV). Our opinions are sought by developers, objectors and regulators. We firstly consider if we can support the position of the party approaching us, are available during the scheduled hearing dates, and are free of conflicts of interest. The methodology we use is customised for each case. We typically consider the wider strategic planning context, the existing and preferred character of the site and locality, the building height and form, facades, and landscaping.

​We provide expert urban design evidence on all aspects of the experience of the public urban environment.  This includes buildings, streetscapes, localities and advertising signs.​
