NSW Public Works (NSWPW) specialises in an end-to-end land and easement acquisition service on behalf of local and state government clients, through both the negotiated and compulsory acquisition processes. This service includes:

  • Facilitating early access agreements with landowners
  • Providing a qualified Acquisition Manager to facilitate acquisition negotiations
  • Providing a qualified Personal Manager for residential acquisition and relocation projects
  • Consulting with external stakeholders including landowners, solicitors, valuers, and various government authorities.

The NSWPW Land Acquisition and Property Services team can also provide advice to agencies on the time and cost implications of acquisition processes on their infrastructure projects.

NSWPW is highly experienced in providing advice on land tenure, Native title and Aboriginal land claim processes that may impact an infrastructure project. This information can assist government agencies in selecting the most appropriate location for an infrastructure project in the initial planning stages, to avoid unforeseen delays that can occur when the appropriate due diligence processes have not been undertaken.

Our property officers, spatial experts and registered surveyors deliver integrated advice on title and cadastral issues. This high-quality service is supported with the ability to provide visual reporting via a purpose-built geographic information system (GIS) web mapping application.
