Caroline Musker Made Senior Director at Lichfields

Caroline Musker

Planning and development consultancy Lichfields has promoted a leading member of its Manchester team to Senior Director.

Caroline Musker, who joined the office as a Graduate 15 years ago, has moved up the career ladder from the position of director.

Lichfields Chief Executive James Fennell said: “Caroline’s promotion is a well-deserved and recognition of her skills and abilities in delivering for our clients in the North West.

“She has amply demonstrated her capabilities as a director and we look forward to supporting the further development of her career with Lichfields.”

Caroline is an experienced planner having delivered permissions for many large-scale commercial, mixed-use, residential, hospital and hotel developments.

She recently secured a hybrid planning permission for 1.4 million sq ft of logistics floorspace on Green Belt land at St Helen’s, for Bericote Properties Ltd. The Amazon Logistics hub on this scheme is due to be completed next month.

One of her most high-profile jobs was to deliver, as part of a large multi-disciplinary team, a Development Consent Order at the complex Daventry international Rail Freight Terminal.

This development comprises 7.9 million sq ft of logistics space, a new rail freight terminal, and a 193 acre nature reserve, known as Lilbourne Meadows.

Caroline said: “I could not be more thrilled about becoming a Senior Director at Lichfields. I am very fortunate to have such fantastic people around me who have mentored me since I joined as a Graduate in 2004.

“Myself and my team are very excited about the future. Having worked on high profile schemes in the North I am eager to assist in steering the growth of the office to achieve our future goals, and build on the strong foundations of the Lichfields brand.”

Caroline has been joined as a Senior Director by her colleague, Chris Darley who is based in Lichfields’ Leeds office.
