Urbanista provides clear, fresh, high quality planning and design solutions and policy advice based on proven principles, research and deep knowledge of the urban and regional environment and what makes successful, sustainable places. 

We consistently deliver results for our clients on projects ranging from small developments to complex urban renewal involving established communities, from feasibility assessment to high-level policy and strategy advice.

By capturing opportunities, exploring options and implementing innovative approaches, we achieve the physical, environmental, social and economic goals set by our clients.

A key interest of ours is assisting Councils and others to respond to local and regional housing challenges through responsive strategies tailored to local conditions and opportunities.
