Principal Consultant

Joshua Skinner

Joshua Skinner

Josh is a development advisor and statutory planner with a pragmatic approach to development assessment.

He believes that an outcome-focused approach should be adopted in the facilitation of development approvals as high quality design outcomes are rarely determined by simply meeting quantitative standards.

Josh combines his consulting experience with three and a half years in Local Government from 2011 to 2015. This experience means that he is focused on providing local councils with the information they need to determine development applications quickly and easily.

Clients enjoy Josh’s ability to simply and clearly articulate complex planning issues in his reports, and his friendly, obliging and hard-working manner.
