Planning and Development Consultancy firm promotes two directors


Nicola Woodward and Neil Westwick

Planning and development consultancy firm Lichfields has promoted two of its directors to senior positions.

Nicola Woodward opened the firm’s Scottish base in Edinburgh in 2015 and continues to lead the office. Neil Westwick initially joined Lichfields’ London office and returned to his native North East seven years ago.

James Fennell, chief executive said: “We are delighted to recognise the outstanding contributions Nicola and Neil make to our business. These promotions reflect their excellent work for our clients and the success of their offices.”

In the last few weeks Crosswind Development announced it had appointed Lichfields to deliver the planning for a residential and mixed-use scheme on an unused 100-acre site at Edinburgh Airport.

Nicola Woodward, senior director and head of Edinburgh office, added: “The Edinburgh office continues to go from strength to strength. We are developing a wide-reaching client base and supporting the growth of the Scottish economy with our work on some of the country’s most exciting current projects.”

Westwick has extensive experience in advising clients on a variety of projects, including major residential and commercial developments.

He is currently supporting Theakston Estates on the development of a 4,500 garden village to the north of Darlington.
