Manchester planning and development consultancy Lichfields has announced several new appointments to support growth and meet strong demand for its services.

Alexandra Gavin and Josh Woollard join as senior planners at Lichfields King Street office while Harry Russell, Abigail Knowles and Clover Long start as planners. They are joined by economics consultant Tom Harrison, who will be part of the office’s economic team. All six appointments will be working on a range of commercial, industrial, housing and leisure development projects alongside progressing business development initiatives across the Manchester and the wider North West of England region.

Now employing 22 at its Manchester office, the move comes as Lichfields continues to mark its 60th anniversary year and target fees around the £25 million milestone by the end of 2022.

Simon Pemberton, senior director and head of Lichfields Manchester office, said: “The new appointments reflect our continued success and organic growth alongside the opportunity for career progression at Lichfields.

“Alexandra, Josh, Harry, Abigail, Clover and Tom will all be great additions to our team. They have some excellent experience, bringing even more depth to our services as we continue to grow off the back of a diverse, high quality client base and exciting portfolio of work.”

Founded in 1962, the company offers a broad range of planning and development consultancy services including development management, consultation, economics, EIA, heritage, neighbourly matters and urban design. Its clients include developers, landowners and operators in the housing, retail, leisure, commercial, waste and recycling and infrastructure sectors; as well as local authorities and government bodies.
