  • Comment on: RIBA rethinks the future of 66 Portland Place

    Wil an architect be employed to carry out the design? Or a non-architect? Anybody is allowed to design buildings in the UK. The ARB even state that they "cannot differentiate between the work of an architect and a non-architect".

    Isn't it time the UK Government regulated the unqualified?

    Perhaps Norman Foster would like to champion 'Minimum Architects Fee Scales' and 'Protection of Function of Architect'.

    I am currently attempting to stop Planning Officers in St.Asaph approving a residential development of 5 & 6 bedroom houses with rear garden lengths between 4.5 and 6 metres for 3 storey houses. The distance between bedroom windows down to 17.5 metres. The scheme approved at Outline Planning stage, has now been submitted for approval of Reserved Matters. The scheme backs onto an existing 1960's residential estate, why aren't the Planners protecting the existing owners properties. The scheme will result in serious loss of privacy in bedrooms and rear garden space, not to mention problems of noise and loss of sunlight.

    The housing Crisis is creating the slums of the future. The Planning Officers are not enforcing Planning Policy and it appears that there is little or nothing that the UK public can do about it.

    The Royal Institute of British Architects should be insisting that architects are involved in all UK building projects. The architects profession is being side stepped by developers and the public. UK Government continue to allow every man and his dog to design buildings, putting the UK public at risk.
