Dickson Rothschild’s helps navigate challenging development approvals
Successful mediation can help avoid lengthy and expensive Court cases. Dickson Rothschild is often called upon to help navigate this challenging process for development approvals.
Earlier this year, our Managing Director, Nigel Dickson, acted as the Urban Design and Architecture expert to help achieve a successful mediation outcome for this project in Sydney’s east. We worked with the project architects and planners to revise tower and podium facades, improve lobby entrances and enhance communal open spaces.
Dickson Rothschild’s mediation expertise achieves approval for Early Learning Centre in Sydney's South
We were pleased to have been part of the team achieving a development consent at Court for our Early Learning Centre client in Sydney’s south. We improved operating efficiency in terms of floor area, and resolved neighbour concerns on street parking and acoustics with considered design solutions.
Dickson Rothschild’s mediation expertise achieves quadruple approvals for Scape developments
Dickson Rothschild is often called upon to help navigate the challenging Court process for development approvals.
We were excited to provide Urban Design expertise to achieve a successful mediation outcome for these four developments by Scape.
In our role, we worked extensively with the four architects of each project, to ensure compliance with the LEP, DCP and the contentions expressed at Court. Mediation at Court has helped to achieve a rapid consent, as well as design improvements such as introducing through-site links, improving landscape design elements and exploring alternative façades.

Dickson Rothschild helps navigate the challenging Court process for development approvals.
Our Managing Director, Nigel Dickson, was an Urban Design Expert on this project at Sydney Park. Nigel’s involvement in the intensive four-month mediation helped to resolve key concerns from the City of Sydney around separation between buildings, setbacks, and height and bulk.
The successful mediation delivered a desirable outcome for both parties and negated the need for a long and expensive court hearing – a great win for all.

A clever design giving new life to an old shop top building in busy inner-city Sydney. Dickson Rothschild’s infill solution created nine much-needed affordable housing units and enhanced the retail premises, whilst retaining the much loved character of the building against its neighbouring properties.
Reflecting the priorities of the community, this design by Dickson Rothschild transforms the existing space into an urban environment providing community infrastructure – a library and a much-desired public domain for leisure and public art opportunities – as well as underground culverts for endangered ecological species.
Characterised today by low lease activity and poor amenity, our planning and urban design proposal seeks to substantially increase job opportunities and residential offerings for this industrial section of inner west Sydney.
Millers Point Community Garden - the little garden that gives
The Millers Point Community Garden, and its dedicated volunteers, continue to be the little garden that gives. Dickson Rothschild are proud to have supported the start of this little urban oasis with our masterplans and solar analysis.
Rural living at the edge of Sydney - Arcadia Consent
Our clients were embarking on a new rural life on the edge of Sydney. Dickson Rothschild’s role was to masterplan clever use of their land to accommodate both their growing vegetable garden business and family living. We then reimagined the existing run-down farm house as a modern family home. This heart-warming project has achieved recent development consent.
This exciting mixed-use development received recent modification consent and will deliver a boutique and modern residential and retail offering to the new town centre of Epping. Dickson Rothschild has worked tirelessly with the Client on a journey of development applications and Land and Environment Court to achieve this now-desirable product for the market.
Envisioned as a local mixed-use hub of a new purpose-built club, shop top housing, shops, resort-style seniors living and a new north facing public park, the highly anticipated Heart of Willoughby development is now approved by the Sydney North Planning Panel!
