Welcome To Wheatman Planning – Celebrating 25 years

2022 is our 25th year as an independent planning consultancy.

We are proud to have provided expert advice to so many clients over these years, but we continue to build our reputation based on service and succes

We operate throughout England and have experience in all aspects of town planning with our core sectors being:

  • residential developments
  • holiday parks, caravan parks, and tourism projects.

We provide services, from initial site appraisals to appeals and Environmental Impact Assessments. Our experience covers multi-million-pound projects to individual plots.


The company is based on 40 years of experience of Simon Wheatman, a Chartered Town Planner, who has worked in local government planning departments before learning his craft as a consultant with a leading firm of consultants in the eastern region at that time, where, as an Associate Director, he developed their client base in tourism and residential sectors. In 1997 he established Wheatman Planning Limited and now leads a small team of professionals.

Importantly, all consultants are Chartered Members of the Royal Town Planning Institute with the added benefit of having previous experience of working in local government planning departments.


Our service is firmly based on our previous experience in local government and consultancies. We provide a bespoke service reflecting the needs of each client and commission. Our outstanding track record of tackling difficult planning issues, using practical and imaginative approaches, results in repeat instructions from our clients. We are constantly exploring new ideas and approaches to deliver our clients’ objectives through planning applications, local plan promotion, and planning appeals.

We have a track history and can be frequently found at national industry exhibitions meeting existing and new clients.


Contact us to start the first step. We find most clients prefer a brief, clear email report that answers the questions can we do this? If not, what can we do? And how soon can we get started?
