Stantec has welcomed Lynsey Fraser to the team as Director of Planning in Scotland. With over twenty years’ experience in both the public and private sectors in Northern Ireland, England and Scotland, Lynsey will further strengthen Stantec’s planning expertise across all sectors.

Having spent several years in consultancy in Scotland, Lynsey has covered a range of development work from retail and commercial to healthcare and residential, and her appointment will ensure a continued focus on delivering a range of projects across Stantec’s range of active sectors, including regeneration, leisure and energy developments.

Commenting on her new role, Lynsey said: “At Stantec, communities come first and I’m excited to put my experience to good use delivering the right outcomes for our clients who look to improve places for people around the country. Having been with the company just a few weeks, the strong sense of teamwork and collaboration across the board is already apparent and I look forward to developing my skills to help lead such a talented team.”

Mark Johnston, Planning Director, added: “I am delighted that Lynsey has joined us. Her knowledge, experience, and insights will be a great asset to our Planning teams across the UK. Her appointment in a leadership role will help us deliver a significant and growing list of planning projects across all sectors. With a focus on Scotland and the regeneration and renewables sectors, Lynsey’s experience of leading large scale project teams will be invaluable. I’m confident that Lynsey will help our offering go from strength to strength.”
