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?

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


We can prepare, submit and manage all types of planning 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.
