History and Pedigree

Chartplan was formed in 2004 by Director Barry Kitcherside, however the experience of Barry and his team date back over 40 years and include numerous prestigious and complex planning and architectural projects.

Having worked for a number of architectural practises over the years, Barry capitalised on unused office and warehouse premises and was an early pioneer in the mid 1970’s, identifying and transforming languishing sites into highly profitable residential housing.

Holding position as planning and Technical Director for Frogmore Estates following a management buyout of the commercial arm Barry’s remit covered all pre-acquisition due diligence through technical and planning audits on land and investments. After due diligence Barry continued to orchestrate and advance tactics in seeking to secure and deliver all requisite planning consents. Just some of these projects included;

  • GLC County Hall & Number One Westminster Bridge

  • Paddington basin

  • Butlers Wharf regeneration

  • Regeneration of Gipsy Corner

  • A quantum of Commercial Business Parks in strategic locations

  • A considerable number of provincial and central London office developments

Over the years Barry and the team have forged excellent working relationships with the majority of the major planning officers and directors of the inner and outer London Boroughs and major Cities. Chartplan have access to the GLA, TFL and other significant strategic consultees all of which has helped Chartplan be where it is today.
