GSA ANNOUNCEMENT: GSA Planning will continue to operate during COVID-19, with some adjustments to working arrangements. In response to the current challenge, our major priority will be the health and safety of our clients, our team, and the broader community.

We will continue to work safely and securely. As always, we can be contacted by email (info@gsaplanning.com.au), and phone (02 9362 3364).

We will continue to deliver our planning services to our usual very high standard. However, most Councils and State Government agencies, together with many of our fellow consultants, will have staff working from home. This is likely to slow down response times, application determinations, etc. In this situation, we seek your understanding if there are delays.

To protect the health and safety of our clients and our team, we will be organising teleconferences or video links for the foreseeable future in lieu of face-to-face meetings. We have the highly regarded Zoom for video conferences (if you’d like to join us on that platform, complimentary registration is easy: zoom.us).

We are grateful that we currently enjoy good health and acknowledge those at the front line of treating patients, or working within the community.

We wish everyone good health in the interim and look forward to a return to normal.


GSA Planning was established in Sydney in 1988 and on the Gold Coast in 1992 as an Urban and Traffic Planning Consultancy. Since that time, our services have been expanded to meet clients’ needs and we now offer a “one-stop” consultancy for a wide range of expertise.

Our services include: Urban Planning; Masterplanning; Traffic Planning; Environmental Planning; Design and Development Advice; Advice on State and Local planning policies, including zoning, development potential and compliance with planning controls; Section 94 contributions and Planning Agreements; Project Management; Negotiation and Mediation; and Representation in the Land and Environment Court.

The GSA Planning team includes qualified and experienced town planners, urban designers, architects and traffic engineers and we enjoy a good working relationship with our peers, Council officers and other practitioners, both locally and regionally. GSA Planning has undertaken a considerable amount of work in Local Government areas across NSW, including but not limited to the Eastern suburbs (Woollahra, Waverley and Randwick), City of Sydney, Inner West Councils, Northern Beaches, Greater Western Sydney, Newcastle, Gosford, Bathurst, Orange, Tweed Shire and Wollongong.

Our company has been involved in a wide range of projects for over 20 years, including: development applications for residential, commercial, mixed use, industrial, special use, community use, seniors living and affordable housing projects; rezoning applications; State Significant Developments; Major Projects; preparing LEP and DCPs for local governments; independent assessments of Council projects; and, being Court appointed expert and expert witness in the Land and Environment Court.

Our company strives for professional excellence and client satisfaction. Our continuing challenge is to keep pace with the ever-changing demands of the urban environment.
