For over 40 years, Michael has advised public and private sector clients on managing the approvals process from regulation to litigation. An experienced expert witness, he has presented urban planning/design evidence before the NSW Land and Environment Court in nearly 700 cases. This long and diverse experience has led him to the conclusion that the NSW Planning System must change as it goes into the 21st century. Together with the late John Mant, he co-authored a proposal for a NSW Better Places Act to control development applications and assessment in urban areas.
