we are urban planners

We solve complex planning issues. We guide landmark developments. We open doors to decision makers. And we work with you to shape places that are truly exceptional.

Over 50 years of involvement in many of WA’s most recognisable developments has provided us with unrivalled knowledge of the planning system, and what it takes to create exceptional places. Our team of pioneering and imaginative experts use this knowledge to create plans and designs that are sustainable and implementable. We help you get projects successfully over the line.


Urban design should provide a connection between human values and the physical environment to create places of meaning that people love – Ben De Marchi, DIRECTOR.

what we do

Taylor Burrell Barnett has been shaping Western Australia for more than 50 years.

We combine our deep understanding of our unique part of the world, with a sustainable approach to town planning and urban design.

Our public and private sector clients benefit from our industry-leading ideas and creativity, guiding projects towards the best possible outcomes. This is true whether we are masterplanning communities to support future growth, or working on development approvals for land owners.

Our services

places people belong

We recognise that creativity and innovation comes from bringing different cultural perspectives together, and cultivating their unique contributions. When current and future community members contribute to the planning process, the result is a place where each person shares a sense of belonging.

Our engagement approach provides this opportunity for community members to share their voice.
