Planning consultancy Lichfields has announced two new appointments to its Thames Valley office in Reading.

Planners Florence Leung and Caitlin Attrill will join the team at Apex Plaza.  Florence has a background as a journalist in Hong Kong and completed her MSc in Urban and Regional Planning in the Summer at the University of Sheffield.

Caitlin will be working part time while studying for her MSc in Spatial Planning and Development at the University of Reading.

Both will receive support through Lichfields’ graduate programme and Royal Town Planning Institute mentorship.

The appointments follow the appointments of Ed Rehill and Nick Kirby as associate director and planning director respectively.

Daniel Lampard, senior director and head of the Thames Valley office, said: “We are experiencing strong growth and success, working on a range of exciting projects across the Thames Valley, and are pleased to be expanding the team in response to this.

“Florence and Caitlin will be great additions to our team, bringing more depth to our services as our workload increases off the back of an expanding portfolio of work.”
