We have made two new promotions in our Newcastle office following the turn of the new year.

Rachel Jones, RICS Registered Valuer and Commercial Property Consultant, has been promoted to director, with over 17 years’ experience in valuation, lease advisory, and expert witness casework across all property types. She has worked with and advised major financial institutions, corporate bodies, funds, local authorities, and government agencies on a wide range of real-estate matters.

Rachel commented: “We have a fantastic team here in Newcastle and I am looking forward to working with our management team in continuing to deliver excellent service for our clients and driving further success for LSH in the region.”

Laura Dixon, Chartered Town Planner, has also been promoted to director after nearly 5 years with LSH, having extensive experience working with planning policy and development management, working across the North East and Yorkshire’s planning consultancy team. She has been involved in several major projects, including advising on a recent Development Consent Order examination.

Laura commented: “It is great to work in the North East and alongside property expert colleagues, where together we can help clients to realise their development potential and deliver viable schemes.”

Richard Wilson, Head of the Newcastle office, said: “Announcing promotions is a great start to 2024 for the team here in Newcastle after a successful 2023, vindicating the talent we have at LSH and the hard work which has been put in. Whilst we cannot hide from the fact that we are in a difficult market, the start of the year has seen our workload continue to grow in all areas of the business and we will be looking to recruit to strengthen our team further.”
