Meet John Gilbert
John delights in helping people navigate council through the complexity of councils. His 30 years experience in the planning and building industry (from an assistant GM at council to today’s focus on helping individuals achieve approval), John’s insight into NSW planning legislation continues to make him the Kwi-Gon-Jinn of Town Planning.
Why Fragar Planning (The Council Approval Experts)?
“We have professionals on board that are qualified and worked within local government. Being property developers and the like ourselves it allows us to achieve the right outcome for the client.”
As our Director, John’s particular expertise is helping to unstick projects and help clients take action in achieving council approval. John brings in two spheres of knowledge – Town Planning & Building Surveying, which combined with his senior management experience and mediation training makes him a formidable leader on your consultant team.

Managed in excess of 150 DAs through council per annum whilst working with a project home builder.
In a former life, John used to race motorbikes on the track (though we suspect off the track as well). He has a great love for 70s motorcycles which you will find him polishing on weekends.
