Meet Max Fragar
Principal, Life Fellow of PIA
Max (a Jedi Knight of Town Planning) is our founder and principal consultant. With over 50 years of experience, he is one of the few Registered Planners in Australia that are also a Life Fellow of the Planning Institute of Australia (the highest level of professional recognition for a town planner). He has helped tens of thousands of people achieve council approval. Max is a ‘can do’ and a ‘make things happen’ kinda guy. His enthusiasm for achieving council approval is contagious.
Why Fragar Planning (Council Approval Experts)?
“I don’t know of any other firm our size that has decided to focus on the average Australian property or business owner. With my team, I enjoy pulling a rabbit out of a hat for a client, and then seeing the value it adds to their life.’ – Max Fragar
From the humble residential development to major projects, Max has seen it all over the past 50 years.
- Life Fellow of the Planning Institute of Australia (the highest level within the town planning profession),
- Registered Planner
- Director of Planning within Local Government (20yrs)
- The principal of Fragar Planning & Development (22yrs)
You’d think after having such an impact on his profession, communities, and clients that Max would be now traveling the world. Most would. But he’s also been doing that for 40 odd years. But two challenges stop Max retiring: 1) He can’t play golf, and 2) Retirement is about doing what you love and enjoying life – and there is nothing he enjoys more than to help people unleash their dreams through the right council approval.
