Understand the viability of a project or a piece of land before pulling the trigger.
Less than an hour from Melbourne, Geelong has become THE destination to build your dream home.
Geelong is a unique place, offering regional costal living with an inner-city vibe, a great place for a new build or renovation.
Are you part of the recent mass migration of tree changers from Melbourne? Geelong has so much to offer, plenty of jobs and beautiful beaches at arms lengths, what’s not to like about living here? Whether you are thinking about renovating a mid century gem, knock down rebuild or a new build on a semi rural block – whatever your plan, we can help make it happen.

Does a DDO height restriction apply to your property?
A Design and Development Overlay (DDO) will guide the scale and form of your development on your land. One of the most common of these in the Geelong region triggers the need for a planning permit if your building height is greater than 7.5 metres. We can help you understand the DDO requirements set by the City of Greater Geelong Council and should you require a planning permit under the DDO provisions we can help you achieve one.
The other common Planning Permit triggers we come across in this region via overlays on properties are the Vegetation Protection Overlay (VPO), Bushfire Management Overlay (BMO), Significant Landscape Overlay (SLO) and Environmental Significance Overlay (ESO). No matter which overlay applies to your property, AS Planning can assist in engaging the right professional(s) and obtaining the reports required for the Planning Permit application. Whether it’s a Designer, Arborist, Landscape Architect, Traffic Engineer or any other relevant professional, we have an extensive network of local experts to assist with the development process.
