Property and planning consultancy Rapleys has launched a new office in Cambridge, alongside its existing office in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.
Stuart Harris has been appointed head of the Cambridge office. His previous roles were with Strutt & Parker and Carter Jonas.
Harris will be responsible for promoting and coordinating the delivery of the firm’s core property consultancy and town planning services in the city.
Harris said: “There are significant opportunities in Cambridge, which is rapidly increasing in commercial importance and is one of the fastest growing cities in the UK.
"This looks set to continue - not least driven by the wider strategic plan for the region including the Cambridge-Oxford arc and expressway - and we are seeing an increasing demand, particularly for planning and consulting services from businesses seeking to capitalise on this growth.”
The firm's Cambridge office consists of both professional advisory and transactional teams from across Rapleys’ service lines, delivering a joined-up, multi-disciplinary offering to clients in the region.
