JEH Planning is a new independent Town Planning Consultancy Practice established in 2019.

The company is directly managed by James Hobson who has extensive experience in town planning and related disciplines for over 30 years.


James Hobson

Managing Director

Previously at WYG and before that at Signet Planning (where he co-founded the business) James is a chartered planning consultant and a member of the Royal Town Planning Institute with a wide range of experience in resolving planning and development issues.

Apart from the knowledge of, and enthusiasm for, town planning, his objective is to provide a highly focused and responsive solution based service.

When he is not committed to securing planning permissions, you will usually find James honing his skills on the golf course or keeping fit which involves either running with his dog or a Pilates class with his wife.
