Planet Urban was established in 2003 to provide professional independent and specialist town planning advice and services to architects and other professionals, proponents of development, local councils and their residents on a range of town planning and development related matters.

Planet Urban specialises in providing town planning advice and services in relation to development throughout the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, encompassing the Local Government Areas of Randwick, Waverley, Woollahra, Botany and Sydney City. This focus has allowed our business to develop a greater knowledge and understanding of the local development controls, which apply in these areas, which provide real and direct benefits to our clients.

We can also recommend, engage and/or coordinate input from other professionals including architects and drafts persons, landscape architects, urban designers, surveyors, heritage and traffic consultants, NatHERS/BASIX assessors, etc. appropriate to the nature and scale of the development project.

You will find our fee rates to be most competitive in the industry.


Planet Urban is committed to the implementation of best practice planning principles in achieving desired outcomes for our clients, whether for proponents of development or those affected by development.

We pride ourselves on providing a prompt and efficient response to enquiries and working through issues with our clients to achieve successful outcomes.

We work closely with other professionals to ensure that our clients receive the best and most cost effective level of service appropriate to their needs.
