Melanie was extremely helpful when I applied for a planning permit for car parking dispensation through the Vic Smart application process. She had great knowledge of how the council worked, and was well known and regarded in the Town Planning department at Kingston council. I received her thorough report promptly and the council application went through without a hitch! I would not hesitate to employ Melanies expertise again.

In the past I had always used a large company for my jobs. They were good at what they did but the personal touch just wasn’t there. Moving on was difficult as I was engaging a company I had no previous experience with. Thankfully Melanie @ A Change of Plan lived up to her promises and I am extremely pleased with the quality of work.

I will always trust Melanie and Change of Plan for all my Town Planning services, knowing very well that from the very get go I will be given professional advice that not only suits my budget, but of course the specific goals and unique requirements of my project. From Council to Council, project to project, design to design I strongly recommend Melanie Ellis and Change of Plan.

Jake Dorian, Enlight Building Design We have used Change of Plan for a number of projects that required town planning permits. Melanie’s detailed experience in the town planning field, make Change of Plan a must on every town planning project that we undertake. Her advice has proven to be accurate and helpful, and while using Change of Plan we seem to achieve a council response much faster. We would highly recommend Change of Plan for any building project that requires town planning permits, or town planning advice.
