Shane Adamson - Development Manager

Much of Shane’s working life has been spent with local government mostly in the area of development assessment from both an engineering and town planning perspective.

Shane understands how local government functions and is acutely aware of the importance of maintaining planning principles that are important to local government. Being an experienced development assessment planner means that Shane understands that planning provisions are to be read broadly and interpreted in a practical manner.  

Shane has a passion for appeal work and has acted as an expert witness in a number of appeals lodged with the Planning and Environment Court and the Building and Dispute Resolution Committee.

Being an experienced expert witness means that Shane understands that his role is one of ‘Duty to the Court’ and acts for any party based on the planning merit of a proposal. Shane regularly acts as an expert for local government, the development industry and submitters.   

Having worked as a senior officer in local government and as a consultant for a number of years, Shane has gained considerable experience with the assessment of major and often controversial development applications and can assist with resolving compliance matters. 

Shane holds a Bachelor of Technology (Civil Engineering) and a Graduate Diploma in Urban and Regional Planning. Shane is also a qualified ‘mediator’ and is currently studying towards a Graduate Certificate in Dispute Resolution.

More recently, Shane has been appointed as a General Referee for the Building and Development Dispute Resolution Committee and has acted in this role in deciding appeals lodged.   

Shane considers himself to be a professional person of good character who is approachable and friendly and welcomes the opportunity to provide quality advice at a reasonable cost.
