Wakefield Planning was founded in Armidale NSW in 1992 and established a physical presence in Victoria in 2005.  After 10 year's operation with Victoria as the main office, we have now retured to a base in NSW.

We cater for clients nationally.  While most of our work is in Victoria and NSW we undertake work in all other states and the ACT. We operate in both metropolitan and rural areas, with projects ranging from metropolitan city centres to rural properties.
