November 2019 - Thames Tap
Planning consultancy Lichfields has moved its Thames Valley office to Reading’s Apex Plaza.
The team which opened at The Aquarium, in King Street in 2015, has relocated to support the firm’s ambitious growth plans.
Director Daniel Lampard, who set the office up, added senior planner Sarah Watts and planner Emily Rickard to the team this year.
Mr Lampard said: “The move to new offices is timely as we have now established a strong foothold in the Thames Valley and have ambitious plans for the office’s continued growth.
“Over the last five years we have supported a string of key regional developments and see great opportunities in the coming months and years to build upon our growing roster of clients in both the public and private development sectors.”
Recent work by Lichfields in the region includes:
* Providing planning and heritage advice on the Berkeley Homes redevelopment of the Horlicks Factory site in Slough
* Acting for an investment fund managed by JP Morgan on the redevelopment of Foundation Business Park, in Maidenhead
* Obtaining planning permission for a new food store at Newbury Retail Park.
Stephen Holt from Haslams acted for Lichfields, while Campbell Gordon acted for the landlord Legal & General Investment Management.
