Central Vic Planning Consultants

About Us

Central Vic Planning Consultants was started in an effort to provide a more cost effective, efficient and customer orientated planning permit experience. With so many people frustrated with the length of time it was taking for their reports to be completed we wanted to help improve the available services and Central Vic Planning Consultants was born.


Central Vic Planning Consultants provide a highly efficient, professional service to ensure you can start building your home or development as quickly as possible. With our extensive experience and proven results in the building industry, you can be confident we will achieve the best possible results for your planned development. Unlike our competitors, we will not spend months compiling your application. Our focus is great customer service, quick turnaround times and affordability.

Meet Our Team


Tessa Ambrose

Planning Consultant / Director

“I have worked in the building industry for over 7 years and have a great deal of knowledge about the process of building a house and what to look out for when choosing your dream block of land. I have extensive experience in planning permit applications and planning scheme guidelines. My passion is to provide customers with quality service and product at an affordable price. When I’m not working I am often found volunteering in community projects in my home town of Clunes.”

Lily Mason

Assistant Planning Consultant

Lily has been working for Central Vic Planning Consultants for 3 years and has brought her many years of experience in journalism and writing to ensure our reports are top notch. Over the last 18 months she has been learning the ins and outs of being a town planner and is an integral part of the business.

Deirdre Krausgrill


Deidre has a background in animal biology, however she fell into accounting and found she is very good at it! She is always up for a challenge and she will be training as a planner this year.


Having recently used the services of your firm and more specifically Ms Tessa Ambrose, for the recent planning application of my new family home, I would like to say how simple and stress free the whole process was made.

Nothing was too much trouble for Tessa who kept me informed of the applications progress with council and dealt with and negotiated the many issues the council had along the way. Being able to entrust the whole application, including the required landscaping plan, to the one person meant it was a seamless process.

I would like to thank Tessa and would highly recommend both her and your firm to anyone requiring planning assistance.
