Plans for Developers


If you're building in a new residential development, you may be required to submit a landscape concept plan to your developer for approval before being able to proceed with your development application. Each developer will have different design guidelines, requirements and restrictions which all new homes must adhere to. Your landscape concept plan may need to illustrate some or more of the following information: 

  • Planting Schedule (Botanical and common names of plants)

  • Driveway materials and colour

  • Treatment to all ground areas

  • Side gate set backs

  • Location of bin store

  • Fencing treatment to all boundaries

  • Percentage of native plants and trees

  • General plant placing


Cheswick Consultants can develop a landscape concept plan for you which will accurately illustrate the design requirements of your development. 

We provide landscape concept plans for the purpose of developer or council approval. If you're building a new home in a new residential development or planning on a knock-down rebuild in an established area, it is likely that you'll need to provide a landscape plan with your development application to the developer or your local council. With an intimate understanding of current guidelines and requirements, we can create a landscape plan for your soon-to-be home
