Town planning was a very new discipline when Nathaniel Lichfield set the company up. He was a pioneering economist and town planner, and the business was soon advising government, local authorities, and private clients on some of the country’s most significant projects - from new towns and airports, to the country’s first regional shopping centre, and the world’s most famous stadium.
