Making better places


Place Matters is a niche consulting practice committed to creating better places by bringing strong inter-disciplinary approaches to all of our assignments. Place Matters is owned and managed by Jacques Stoltz – a seasoned researcher, marketer and development planner. The practice is committed to working in partnership with other professionals across the planning, development, management and marketing disciplines to deliver and execute integrated solutions for urban precincts and neighbourhoods.


We are also experienced in developing sustainable urban management tools for nodes and developments. Further, we work in affiliation with leading responsible tourism practitioners to undertake specialist tourism assignments.


Sustainability practices, heritage and the creative use of arts and culture are additional areas in which the practice specialises.


Our business ethos remains the same no matter the assignment or approach, because places matter.
