New senior director
Lichfields promotes Scottish office head
Nicola Woodward opened the firm’s Scottish office in Edinburgh in 2015 and continues to lead the office and build its client base.
Ms Woodward is a member of Scottish Government’s Planning Review Working Group on Housing and regularly speaks at conferences in Scotland and the North East of England.
Lichfields chief executive James Fennell said: “We are delighted to recognise the outstanding contribution Nicola makes to our business. This promotion reflects her excellent work for our clients and the success of her office.”
Ms Woodward has worked as a town planner for both the private and public sector since 1997, including housebuilders, land owners, retailers, leisure operators, local authorities, Homes for Scotland and the Scottish Government on a wide range of projects.
Last month Crosswind Development announced it had appointed Lichfields to deliver planning on its 100-acre mixed-use development at Edinburgh Airport, following the closure of its little-used secondary runway.
