Welcome


TOWN PLANNING + URBAN DESIGN CONSULTANTS

Habitat Planning is an industry certified town planning and urban design consultancy. We pride ourselves on offering clients practical and objective advice to help them achieve effective solutions.

Our name is a synonym of ‘town planning’ with habitat meaning “an environment or place for living” and planning being “the process of preparing for future outcomes”. This reflects our philosophy and approach to how we work.
