Nelson Wills frequently provides advice to bodies such as the Department of Transport and Main Roads, Federal Department of the Environment and Energy, and the Urban Development Institute of Australia. Nelson is also often called in to clean up the environmental offsetting mistakes of other less experienced providers. In the majority of cases, he will have seen your environmental offsetting situation before and can expedite approval.
“New Ground are a bit different from other ecologists. They do provide excellent technical ecological advice but they also add a level of commerciality and practicality that demonstrates they understand their customers and projects as well. Nelson’s political and regulatory astuteness is a valuable sounding board. New Ground have also delivered on time and sometimes very quickly when we needed it. They run a first class business.”

“New Ground has made an invaluable contribution to the UDIA Queensland and become one of our go-to for expertise on environmental advice. New Ground, through Nelson Wills, has been generous with their time, knowledge, and support for the Queensland development industry. Members from our branch network, which stretches from Cairns to Coolangatta, have sourced their advice – a true testament to the value they place on people and service.”
Kirsty Chessher-Brown | Chief Executive Officer | Urban Development Insititute of Australia Queensland
“New Ground navigated us through federal government requirements for an environmental offset over our Brentwood master planned community. They identified a solution that saved us a substantial amount of money, enabled us to transfer responsibility for the offset to another party and did not place ongoing offset management burdens over our development site. Their collaborative approach in working with regulators and the project team led them to design solutions that aligned with our vision for the project and led to faster resolution of our approval.”
