Consultancy Nathaniel Lichfield & Partners (NLP) has opened a new office in Bristol - its third new opening in 2015.

Planning director Andy Cockett will head up the new office, in One Temple Quay, Bristol, supported by associate director Sophie White.

Managing director James Fennell told Planning: “The south west is set to be a major growth area over the coming years.

“We are in the business of helping to deliver that growth for housebuilders and commercial clients.” 

Major schemes across the region for NLP include the redevelopment of Ashton Gate Stadium, the regeneration of Carlyon Bay and proposals to expand Bristol Harbourside and Cribbs Causeway. 

Cockett told Planning: “We expect to see lots of activity in the housing, infrastructure, education, retail and commercial sectors across Bristol and the south west.”

In January this year the practice opened a new Thames Valley office in Reading while its first Scottish office will open in Edinburgh in May.
