WeirFoulds is pleased to announce that Lyn Townsend will be presented with the 2017 Cambridge Award at this year’s Planning & Development Forum.
This award recognizes Lyn’s many contributions to land use planning and development.
Lyn practiced law for more than 33 years focusing on land development and most recently mediation. She was with WeirFoulds from 2013 until her recent retirement in December 2016. She now consults on a part-time basis when asked for strategic advice relating to land use matters and mediation.
The Cambridge award adds to an array of recognition that Lyn has received throughout her career, including recently being named Toronto “Lawyer of the Year – Municipal Law” in the 2017 edition of Best Lawyers® in Canada.
Each year the Planning and Development Forum’s Steering Committee welcomes up to 48 Ontario municipal planners and lawyers personally selected from municipalities, private practice and the provincial government to meet and discuss the most pressing issues facing their industry.
Lyn will receive her award on the first night of the forum, May 11, 2017.
