The Association of Land Development Engineers, ALDE, was formed in 1994 to represent the interests of those Professional Consulting Engineers involved principally in the Land Development Industry. 

It provides a focus for the industry to address the many and varied issues which arise in this complex and very important sector of the economy.

The members of the Association represent the majority of Consulting Engineers involved in the full spectrum of Land Development and have close ties with senior executives of Local, State, and Federal Government agencies, and the Construction Industry.

The land development industry in Melbourne is currently producing approximately 30,000 lots per annum, which represents a $1.5 billion dollar investment.  The members of ALDE effectively manage the vast majority of this investment.

The Association takes a pro-active role promoting and enhancing the standing of the Professional Consulting Engineers within the community and with Government, Statutory Authorities, Councils and Industry Associations, and it negotiates with those and other bodies for the improvement of procedures and professional service within the Land Development Industry.
