About Plan Co.

Plan Co. NZ Ltd was established in 2016 by director Mark Weingarth on the back of extensive experience working in various roles in the Resource Consent Department at Auckland Council and senior planning roles in the UK.  In Feb 2018 Janelle Smith joined Plan Co. and helped to develop the business adding her policy, Council and previous consultancy experience into the mix.  Hamish Henderson joined Plan Co. in 2019 bringing his experience of working in both public and private sector planning positions. Vicky Wright and her knowledge and experience in customer service and business administration rounded out the team and leads the day to day operations of the business. 

Plan Co.’s success and reputation is derived from our core principle  of ‘helping people’.   This coupled with our extensive networks of contacts across the industry, our commitment to and collaboration with all those we work with leads to obtaining favourable planning outcomes and excellent results for our clients.  Plan Co. are here to assist with all your planning requirements no matter how big or small.
