Malvern Grove

Malvern VIC Australia
A P

SJB assisted the process of gaining planning approval for Malvern Grove, a contemporary residential development located in inner-suburban Melbourne.  A complicated planning process on this project required a multi-skilled team of consultants. The process of obtaining a planning permit raised a number of challenges typical of infill development in established residential suburbs.

Tension existed between the existing character of the surrounding area, with established period homes and extensive gardens, and the need to introduce a more concentrated development without threatening the integrity of the area or interfering with adjoining residents.

The result is a development which offers a diverse range of apartment styles with new pedestrian links that allow a greater sense of openness and flexibility within the precinct.

SJB coordinated and managed the entire planning process (including a number of hearings before the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal).

SJB’s expert assistance resulted in the successful resolution of key planning questions and the delivery of a high quality residential development on the site.
