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

We are passionate about the built environment and its integration with the natural environment and our specialist knowledge of the landscape and architectural context of an area give our proposals the best chance of gaining planning permission.  We specialise in sustainable development in sensitive landscapes or involving historic buildings and work closely on your behalf with planning departments and consultees.

Based in Sussex we serve an area focused on the South Downs National Park and the districts of Winchester, East Hampshire, Chichester, Arun, Adur, Worthing, Horsham, Mid Sussex, Lewes, Wealden and Eastbourne but increasingly work further afield.

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