Phil Comer

Technical Director - Planning

Technically speaking, Phil brings an abundance of know-how to the Harrison Grierson team, with over 25 years’ planning experience both here and in the UK. 

In his demanding role he’s usually on the move and involved with everything from resource consents to strategic planning and land development on complex residential, commercial and industrial projects.

He also leads spatial planning projects to rezone land by way of structure plan and plan change processes.

Little wonder, then, that Phil relishes the diversity of what he does on a daily basis. “What I love about HG is the range of work, the superb clients that we have, and the great people,” he says.

Phil has also managed a number of multidisciplinary projects, and been an expert witness in Council hearings, in the Environment Court and the High Court.

In his personal life, Phil is a big fan of the outdoors. He loves tramping and fitting in a round of golf when he can. He also has a passion for cooking – accompanied by a decent beer or wine, of course.
