Shane Howard Planning

Town Planning & Development Consultancy


Shane Howard Planning is a boutique town planning consultancy where all work is undertaken personally by Principal, Shane Howard, BA, BTP.

You will receive a personal and expert service.  I can offer you an affordable range of services as I don't have the overheads of larger consultancies.

My core business is providing expert town planning and consultancy services for private individuals, not-for-profit organisations and private and public companies.

I have 30 years experience in both the public and private sectors including 12 years at Brisbane City Council and 10 years at a leading large Qld inter-disciplinary development consultancy. This range of experience gives me the ability to analyse your site’s and your proposal’s issues to find the best solution/s and the best path for you.

I particularly have a detailed knowledge of development within Brisbane City under the Brisbane City Plan 2014 and the former Brisbane City Plan 2000.  I am also familiar with the other SE Qld Planning Schemes.

I have an extensive network of professional co-consultant experts in a wide range of fields that I can brief and manage in order to assist in the provision of comprehensive and accurate advice. These consultant experts can also be gathered together as appropriate to your project to form project teams to present your proposal in the best possible light:

  • traffic engineering
  • civil engineering 
  • hydraulics, stormwater management
  • architecture
  • landscape architecture
  • heritage 
  • cultural heritage 
  • environmental / ecological
  • acoustics
  • surveying
