Barker Parry Town Planning was established in 1992 by Directors Gae Parry and Steven Barker.

We celebrated our 25th anniversary in the summer of 2017 and the Practice continues to go from strength to strength. With a wide range of experience in both the public and private sectors, we seek to provide a clear and practical approach to dealing with planning problems. If you need advice on a project, have a problem with a planning application or wish to appeal or challenge a decision, we will advise you on the way forward.

The Practice works throughout the country and is fortunate enough to have attracted a wide range of clients, both large and small, primarily in, but not restricted to, the Home Counties and Greater London. As a Practice, our commitment is to provide up to date professional advice aimed at achieving a successful outcome for our clients.

How we do it

  • We will, at the outset, make clear our considered opinion as to the best strategy to maximise your chance of success and the likelihood of overcoming any obstacles.
  • Whether your proposal is a householder extension or a housing development we will offer you the support required throughout the planning process, with bespoke solutions, in an efficient and cost effective manner.
  • We will ensure that you are advised of any relevant changes in legislation and will keep you informed throughout your application or appeal process.
  • We will work with you, and where relevant, other consultants, to formulate proposals which are worthy of the scrutiny of either the pre-application, application, appeal or Development Plan process.
  • Having formulated a proposal we will then work with the relevant Local Planning Authority, Parish/Town Councils, the local community and other relevant stakeholders as necessary, seeking to secure support for your scheme.
