Lichfields shortlisted twice at RTPI North East Awards


Lichfields shortlisted twice at RTPI North East Awards

19 Sep 2019
Lichfields is delighted to have two projects shortlisted at the RTPI North East Regional Awards for Planning Excellence.
In February, Lichfields secured listed building consent to change the use of grade II-listed building for the UK’s first cancer patients' cooking school. Life Kitchen is a cookery initiative set up to help people living with cancer and those caring for them. The classes teach recipes which have flavours that appeal to those undergoing chemotherapy where the ability to taste is limited and the enjoyment of eating diminished.
Stephenson Quarter University Technical College (UTC) has also been shortlisted. Developer Clouston Group completed the handover of the new campus in January which will accommodate up to 600 students aged 14-19 years old. The UTC’s design features classrooms, study zones and social spaces, including approximately 10,000 square feet of conservation space which integrate the remains of the Industrial Revolution-era Hawthorn Engineering Works into the new building.
The winners will be announced at the RTPI North East Annual Awards Dinner on 4 October 2019.

We are very proud to see these two fantastic projects shortlisted in this year’s RTPI North East awards. While very different schemes, they help to showcase the diverse range of developments we’re advising on across the region.
