This page identifies the sectors that we regularly involved in aiding our clients deliver quality outcomes.

Mixed use

Mewing Planning Consultants has expertise in major landmark mixed use projects, and understands the land use interactions and opportunities that allow a mixed use outcome to be successful. Our experience extends from residential-led mixed use to mixed community and health facilities.

Retail and commercial

Mewing Planning Consultants has extensive experience in providing planning advice, preparing and lodging development applications, and assisting delivery of retail and commercial developments across Queensland. We are very knowledgeable about the planning and urban form aspects that enable retail and commercial developments to be successful.

Entertainment and hospitality

Entertainment and hospitality is a sector close to our hearts at Mewing Planning Consultants. We work hard and we party hard, and we therefore have a passion for assisting to create great entertainment and hospitality venues. We have assisted in planning applications, liquor licences, outdoor dining and other statutory processes necessary to creating a successful entertainment and hospitality venue.


Mewing Planning Consultants acts for industrial clients who require planning approval and Environmentally Relevant Activities for new or expanded industrial uses. Traditional industrial activities require a strong knowledge of both planning and technical elements associated with industrial uses and locations. In addition, emerging industries and industrial precincts require a innovation in industrial land use planning, of which Mewing Planning Consultants are at the forefront.

Residential – Infill and Greenfield

Mewing Planning Consultants is a leader in providing planning advice, preparing and lodging development applications, and assisting through to delivery of residential product across Queensland. We enjoy a diversity of experience in infill (multiple dwellings) and greenfield (subdivision) developments, from very small to very large scale of projects. That diversity provides us with an insight into what works (and what doesn’t), which can be applied across all sizes of projects to benefit developers, future residents and existing communities alike.



Residential – Alternative

From student accommodation, retirement and aged care, and short-term accommodation, to regional workers accommodation, Mewing Planning Consultants has extensive experience in providing due diligence advice and obtaining planning approvals for alternate residential forms. We have a strong understanding of the key planning matters associated with these alternate (and increasingly popular) residential outcomes.

Mewing Planning Consultants is passionate and experienced in assisting local residents to create their dream home. Whether a new build, a renovation or an extension, we commit ourselves equally to a domestic residential project as to a major development project. We will visit you on-site, clearly identify planning parameters and opportunities, and strategise the appropriate planning process. As we are Brisbane City Council RiskSMART accredited, we can also deliver expedited planning approvals.
