The UK’s leading commercial property consultancy firm Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH), has announced the appointment of three new retail and regeneration specialists as part of the firms’ strategy to bolster its existing planning and design consultancy offering.
The trio who all join from the rival UK based property consultancy Carter Jonas consists of evidence-based retail and economic assessment specialist Blathnaid Duffy, economic and commercial expert Atul Joshi and town centre strategy and regeneration heavyweight Steven Norris who will lead the team.
Speaking of his appointment Steven Norris commented: “LSH has extensive experience in advising both the public and private sectors on the planning, funding, development and management of new regeneration projects. The plan is to evolve this to strengthen our offering in all stages of the regeneration lifecycle: from the preparation of economic and commercial-led strategic visions and masterplans for centres and places, through to robust advice on how to procure, fund, deliver and manage new development and regeneration projects.”
Boasting nearly 30 years’ experience in advising local planning authorities, regeneration bodies, developers, operators, investors and landowners, Steven will assume the position of national head of regeneration, retail and town centre consultancy.
Steven has recently advised a slew of regional councils on a number of regeneration strategies including Nottingham, Oxford and Basingstoke.
Ezra Nahome, CEO at Lambert Smith Hampton added: “I am delighted to have Steven and the team on board. Our town centres are facing unprecedented challenges, and local authorities are having to take an even greater lead in the regeneration process than ever before; from land assembly through to funding and delivering new development. We are on hand to help navigate our clients through the risks and help deliver viable enduring placemaking projects across the UK and Ireland.’’
