It’s the end of an era in the planning profession as Garry Fielding retires from the world of consulting. Garry will continue his role as Chair of the Western Regional Planning Panel and various local planning panels, as well as spending more time with his beautiful grandchildren!

Garry joined the City Plan team at the beginning of 2012 and his first task was to reopen our Newcastle office! Since that time, our Newcastle presence has grown from strength to strength, built largely on Garry’s fantastic reputation in the Hunter region and Sydney/NSW more broadly.

Garry’s career spanned 26 years in Local Government before he joined the NSW State Government. He spent the last 17 years as a consultant calmly and wisely shepherding projects through the planning system.  His extensive service to the planning profession was recognised in 2018 when he became a PIA Life Fellow.

We thank Garry for his service to City Plan and to the planning community as a whole and wish him a long, happy and healthy retirement.
