WHALEBACK is a Town Planning and Design consultancy providing comprehensive planning services.  We offer our clients expert professional advice, support and representation at all stages of the design and planning process.

We’re passionate about the built environment and its integration with the natural environment. Our knowledge of the landscape and architectural context of an area ensures our proposals have the best chance of gaining planning permission.  We specialise in sustainable development in sensitive landscapes including historic buildings and work closely on your behalf with planning authorities and consultees.

Based in Sussex we work across the South Downs National Park, the districts of Winchester, East Hampshire, Chichester, Arun, Adur, Worthing, Horsham, Brighton, Mid Sussex, Lewes, Wealden, Eastbourne and further afield.

Our name comes from the South Downs in a Rudyard Kipling poem: "Our blunt, bow-headed, whale-backed Downs."
