Company Profile

Planz Consultants Ltd is an amalgamation of two specialist independent planning and resource management consultancies to broaden future opportunities in New Zealand and abroad.

Planit RW Batty & Associates Ltd was founded by Mr Bob Batty (Life Fellow of the NZPI) in 1992 and steadily grew to become one of the South Island’s leading resource management planning consultancies from their office in Christchurch. Mr Batty retired from the Company in 2011. Planz Consultants embodies today the same values and principles established in those early years.

Planit Zomac Partnership Ltd commenced business in January 2010. This was a joint venture between Zomac Planning Solutions (Directors Mike Foster and Jane Douglas; Auckland) and Planit RW Batty & Associates. Planit Zomac Partnership operated offices in both Auckland and Christchurch.

The amalgamation of these two companies in 2012 to form Planz Consultants Ltd heralds an exciting time for the provision of specialist resource management planning services in New Zealand. We believe no other company can provide the combined experience and expertise offered by the Directors and personnel employed by Planz Consultants.
