About Us

MKA Planning Limited is the longest established and largest independent planning consultancy firm in Northern Ireland.

We have a proven track record of achieving successful outcomes for our Client’s over the past 10 years.

We guide development projects of all types and scale through an increasing complex, legalistic and ever-changing planning process.


Putting the most appropriate development in the best location is the work of every Planning Consultant. Getting there and the time and cost involved for a Client distinguishes the good from the merely ordinary.

We try to do this in the most cost effective manner. We believe in negotiation with the Planning Service, not confrontation. Our philosophy is to try and achieve a situation whereby everyone wins.

We take time to understand our Clients needs.

Our experience and expertise lies in translating Client’s needs into realisable strategies to achieve planning success.

We are well known to all key decision makers in Northern Ireland. We have a good working relationship with Strategic Projects in Planning Service, District Councils, local MLAs and other Statutory Consultees.

As the planning consultancy that has fought and won more planning appeals in Northern Ireland over the last 10 years we are at the ‘cutting edge’ of developing planning policy and practice in Northern Ireland.

We are therefore ideally qualified to advise Client’s on achieving successful planning outcomes, either with the NI Planning Service or if need be, with the Planning Appeals Commission.
