Hones Lawyers has over 25 years experience in providing advice across all aspects of Environmental and Planning Law. Our team consists of dual qualified lawyers and town planners as well as Law Society accredited specialists in Local Government & Planning law – something few other firms could boast. With this experience we are able to offer a unique service of managing and or coordinating development proposals – from finding the most suitable consultants to preparing development documentation to obtaining speedy approvals. Our cases and clients are varied and most often unique.

Some of our unique cases include:

  • wind farms
  • marinas
  • day care centres
  • mines
  • contaminated land prosecutions
  • land clearing issues through to carport, swimming pools, fencing and tree disputes

We assist our clients in areas of due diligence, land contamination and audits, development proposal preparation, bushfire management, preparation and negotiation of voluntary planning agreements, road closures, and all types of appeals before the Land & Environment Court. We also assist in the preparation of objections in respect of contentious local development.
