  3. About Us

We are a boutique town planning consultancy practice, highly agile and project driven in our delivery of planning services. Over the last six years, Barr Planning has been fortunate enough to provide planning services focused on the development sector throughout the Hunter Region, Sydney and regional New South Wales.

In growing our business, we are pleased to offer the full range of town planning services, combining strategic thinking with practical planning advice and planning expertise.

Our planning practice focuses on development assessment, strategic planning and social and economic impact assessment. The team are highly skilled and qualified planning professionals with a diverse range of experience. The core values of our business focus on continually improving our services and expertise through innovation and learning.

We collaborate with allied design, environmental and engineering practices, both as lead consultant and as team members. Barr Planning offers assistance in all aspects of the development process and in solving complex planning problems – from a logical assessment process, to the facilitation of meetings with relevant government agencies, the submission of applications to government and importantly, the follow through to determination. We specialise in the land development, industrial development, social, digital technology and transport infrastructure, with extensive experience in the residential, education and tourism sectors.

We also believe that we have a unique opportunity and responsibility to support organisations that seek to make a positive social impact in the community. To do this we endeavour to work with organisations that specifically help those who are disadvantaged or vulnerable and are committed to developing collaborative partnerships with clients to help further improve social outcomes.

Barr Planning acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.



Our experience and relationships are what makes us the best – today and tomorrow.
