Kylie Rolley-Cervenjak is a social and urban planner with over 10 years’ experience, primarily in a consulting environment. She is a versatile planner with broad ranging experience working in urban and regional contexts and with clients across private industry, local, state and federal governments, and the not-for-profit sector.

Kylie’s particular expertise lie at the intersection between social policy and land use considerations. Her project experience includes managing social impact assessments, strategic plans, housing strategies, community infrastructure assessments and the development of planning policy. Recently, Kylie has assisted Indigenous communities in Australia and in developing country contexts with the development of various planning instruments.

Kylie’s approach to planning involves working closely with clients, service providers, policy makers, decision makers and the broader public to achieve positive outcomes for local communities, taking resourcing and commercial considerations into account. 

Projects Kylie has worked on include: 

  • Demand assessment for an NGO looking to establish a centre to support children with autism in the ACT.
  • Portfolio analysis of teaching spaces for Griffith University to inform long term strategic and space planning objectives across five campuses.
  • Demand assessment regarding educational facilities within a large scale greenfield development, including provision of advice on contemporary trends and models of delivery.
    Community needs assessment and stakeholder engagement across four Brisbane City Council sport and recreation precincts.
  • Community and stakeholder engagement for Mirvac at Everton Park.
  • Kylie has gained considerable expertise and experience at Urbis and through previous employment in the preparation of social impact assessments, community infrastructure strategies, housing strategies and community and stakeholder engagement.


As planners we work to balance diverse interests within complex policy and planning environments. My focus is on working with people to find the optimal balance that will lead to positive and real change for local communities.
