About Macaulay Town Planning

Sharon Macaulay, Principal Planner.

With 16 years experience facilitating successful outcomes for land use and development projects, I have a clear understanding of local government processes. My experience is diverse, having worked on high end and complex commercial projects such as a rail freight logistics centre, retirement villages, high density residential and retail centre developments, nine solar farms, as well as contaminated sites. I work closely with clients to ensure I fully understand the project brief and can deliver the unique needs of each project. I also have experience in the well-being sector in planning for medical centres, allied health consulting rooms, and other health and recreation services.

With 10 years experience in preparing and coordinating Planning Scheme Amendments, I am well placed to initiate strategic rezonings and associated land use and development outcomes for residential, commercial, and industrial land uses.

I will give you an honest appraisal of the likely success of your proposal before investing in detailed consultancy services, saving you time and money. I design and coordinate project work plans to clarify the best approach, facilitate positive outcomes, and avoid unexpected delays.
