Welcome to CDM Smith.

Property Economics and Economic Planning

CDM Smith provides high quality economics advice to the planning and development sector.

Our team have extensive experience in providing strategic economic advice for regional, city-wide, local and neigh­bor­hood planning and property development.  This includes:

  • economic need and impact assessments;
  • demand studies;
  • socio-economic and demographic analysis;
  • property market analysis and research to support, inform or formulate specific property development proposals and concepts.

We regularly work with local and state government development assessment teams in reviewing development appli­ca­tions.  Key members of our team also provide expert witness services in relation to planning and land resumption appeals.
