Since inception in 2018, clients have engaged JPC Planning on over 200 individual projects.  


JPC Planning works with a wide range of clients, ranging from 'mum and dads' to seasoned developers.


Founder and senior planner James Chappell has years of experience in development assessment within a local government and private consultancy context. His background in local government development assessment gives clients a unique insight into the inner workings and secrets of the decision making process. Graduating from the University of New England with a Bachelor of Urban and Regional Planning, he offers extensive experience in development assessment matters of all scales and sizes.





James has worked effectively with us over an 18 month period to achieve DA approval for our dream family home on the Ocean in Wombarra. Our file classification was "Designated Development" due to Environmental Zoning constraints on the subject site.

James handled the additional state governments Planning Secretary's Environmental Planning Requirements (SEAR) professionally by calling on his extensive knowledge base in this area to complete the SEAR request application which also included an Environmental Impact Statement or 'EIS' for short. James was always available throughout the process to speak with when we had questions and guide as through the process.

Due to the number of objections generated against our DA through the multiple submission / notification periods our file went to the Local Planing Panel (LPP) twice where James spoke on our behalf both times.

James articulated well and represented our design thoroughly and accurately from a town planning perspective. We look forward to working with James in the future and wish him all the best with his future business endeavours. We highly recommend him to others who are looking for local or state level planning expertise.
