PRACTICE // Jensen PLUS
Our multi-disciplinary team has grown to include even more of South Australia’s most experienced and brightest planners, landscape architects and urban designers. We work together to achieve more for our clients.
Planning // Our urban and regional planners negotiate development approvals for complex residential, aged care, retail, industrial and mixed-use developments. We prepare strategic plans and master plans, and write planning policies including Development Plan Amendments.
Landscape Architecture // Our landscape architects prepare landscape plans, concepts, detailed designs and documentation, and provide construction supervision for a wide range of projects including parks, streetscapes and other landscapes.
Urban design // We undertake urban design of many types and at all scales: city-shaping design strategies, designing new suburbs and revitalising neighbourhoods, street design, detailed design of allotments and land divisions, and urban design guidance for buildings and infrastructure.

PRACTICE BEGAN // 1994
Peter Jensen established the business as Jensen Planning + Design in 1994 after working in consultancy and State Government (NSW) for over a decade. The practice quickly grew into a leading and respected multi-disciplinary planning and design consultancy, advising all levels of government and the development industry.
Peter has always specialised in housing, and during 1994-99 was responsible for preparing the national and then the SA design guidelines on low and medium density housing. This interest in housing has led to specialisation in large scale community master plans, precinct planning and urban renewal projects involving the rejuvenation of public housing neighbourhoods.
The practice was the first in SA to expand from strategic and statutory planning to urban design, and over the past 15 years has also expanded into landscape architecture and community engagement.
In 2015 Michael McKeown took ownership of Jensen Planning + Design from Peter. Rebranded as Jensen PLUS at the start of 2017, Michael is continuing to lead the business into its next phase of growth and success.
