Debbie Marriage is a Chartered Town Planner with nearly 30 years’ experience as a town planner. She has been a member of the Royal Town Planning Institute since 2007. Her career began in 1996 at Brighton & Hove City Council, after which she worked for local planning authorities in London, the Midlands, Yorkshire and Sussex. In 2006, she moved into private consultancy, working for companies specialising in the fields of leisure, mobile telecommunications and renewable energy.

Her career has given Debbie an in-depth and first hand understanding of the planning process, and many contacts within local planning authorities across Sussex and the South East.

In 2020 Debbie set up DJM Town Planning, and since then has built up a wide portfolio of clients, from homeowners to property developers and corporate clients, many of whom are return customers.

With her personable approach that puts you the client first, Debbie will provide you with a fast, professional service, whatever your town planning needs.

“As Architects and Developers we have been working with Debbie Marriage on a number of projects across London and the South East. Debbie offers a professional, fast, and efficient service whilst still providing the personal touch.

Working with Debbie has been a pleasure and we consider her knowledge and expertise an essential element in our planning applications. We have no hesitation in saying that Debbie and DJM Town Planning have been instrumental in achieving planning consent for some of our more challenging projects.”
