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 town planning consultancy with offices covering the South East & London, & Thames Valley regions. We love to find simple solutions to complex planning challenges.

Andrew (our Managing 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 two offices in Gatwick/Crawley and Swindon. 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?
