Planning, Development, Collaboration.

We work with the private, public, and voluntary sectors to help them navigate the planning system. Whether you're looking to build a house, plan an urban extension, erect a wind farm, or prepare a neighbourhood plan, we can help.


Our Story

Squires Planning is an independent planning consultancy based in the South East of England. We love to find simple solutions to complex planning challenges.

Andrew (our Director) established Squires Planning in April 2019 in his home office at Squires Cottage. Since then the company has grown and the team is now accommodated at our offices in a converted barn just outside of Crawley. Our team of qualified planners now work on an ever increasing range of projects for an expanding client base. Why not be part of our journey?

Our Services

Specialist Town and Country Planning Consultancy.

We provide professional planning services including consultancy, planning application, development appraisals, planning policy, landowner advice and much more throughout England and Wales.

Applications & Consents

We prepare, submit and manage applications for all types of development - however large or small.


We can review a refused application and if we believe there is a fair chance of success, appeal the refusal on your behalf.

Policy & Research

We work with LPA's, Parish Council's and other local groups to write, and prepare evidence to support, planning policy. We also assist with other policy/research matters.

Site Promotion

Looking to secure an allocation for development? Let us put your land forward to the relevant Council in its best light.

Engagement & Consultations

We manage, host and attend engagement programmes designed to reach a wide cross-section of a community.


We prepare and submit representations from individuals, landowners, and organisations in response to emerging planning policy, or applications by others.


Have you found yourself in trouble with your Local Planning Authority because you have completed unauthorised development? We can help you to fight enforcement action or regularise the situation.
