About Planning Policy Research and 

David Wren 

Why I'm here

I started Planning Policy Research in 1997 to provide an independent planning consultant service dedicated to helping people navigate the planning system.  I am based in Grey Lynn in Auckland.

Who am I

I have over 30 years experience in planning in New Zealand and overseas.  I am a fully qualified planner and hearing commissioner and am a full member of the New Zealand Planning Institute.  I have enjoyed living in inner city Auckland for the past 20 years or so, and I am very familiar with Auckland issues.   I'm also available to work all through New Zealand.  

Planning Policy Research is a small boutique planning consultancy, and while I work in all areas of planning, I specialise in:

  • Developing new District and Regional Plans and Plan Changes;
  • Monitoring the effect of Plan Changes on property and businesses;
  • Assisting people to make submissions on Plans and Plan Changes;
  • Providing information and training.
  • Resource consent application preparation.

Why Work with me?

I pride myself in providing a highly personalised service to my clients.  When you engage me you will deal with me directly, and I will carry out all work myself.  This means that you can have complete peace of mind about your project and that you will be receiving value for money. 

Thank You!
