Council leader to officially open new Lambert Smith Hampton office

31 October 2016

The Leader of South Lakeland District Council (SLDC), Councillor Giles Archibald, will officially launch Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH)’s new Lakeland office at a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Staveley.

The event on 15 November will bring together people from across Cumbria and Lancashire’s business community, to celebrate the commercial property company’s expansion into the area and the commencement of a £2.6m contract with SLDC.

LSH will be responsible for the maintenance and repairs of council buildings across the district

Cllr Archibald said: “I am delighted to help launch this new facility and particularly the potential for some new jobs.

“All the council’s assets belong to the taxpayers of South Lakeland and managing and maintaining them properly is vitally important.

“This expansion by LSH will provide a boost for Staveley and will help us achieve a key pledge from our Council Plan to help our towns thrive commercially.”

LSH Director Richard Platt, who heads the new Kendal office, said: “We are thrilled that Councillor Archibald is able to officially launch our office and operation in Cumbria, and that so many people from SLDC and around the region will be joining us at this event.

“We are very proud of our nationwide network of offices across UK and Ireland, and this new addition. Now that the Kendal office has been officially launched, we are looking forward to getting to know the business community here, and learning more about and capitalising upon all the opportunities that this fantastic region has to offer.”

LSH has opened its new office in Staveley, Kendal with eight staff and is aiming to create further jobs once the new office is established.
