Joel Schmetzer


Joel originally joined Hansen Partnership as a student planner while completing a Masters of Urban Planning and Environment at RMIT.

His understanding of planning and ability to communicate complex material succinctly led to the offer of a full time position. In his time at Hansen, Joel has been exposed to a range of both statutory and strategic planning projects, developing a professional understanding of the planning process.

His exceptional ability to interpret policy and communicate detailed arguments has been a vital asset to achieving successful outcomes across a range of commercial, industrial and residential planning applications and VCAT appeals in both urban and rural contexts.

Joel also brings a strong theoretical knowledge base to complex strategic planning projects, which have included undertaking research and analysis for planning scheme amendments and land use strategies.
