Protection of Function set to come under scrutiny

One of the leading proponents of 'Protection of Function' is set to stand to become a member of the ARB board.

If George Oldham, a high-profile member of RIBA council, wins the election, he is sure to put pressure on board members to extend from the more simple 'Protection of Title'.

Regionally elected RIBA council member Oldham has announced he will stand in the early-January election to sit on the ARB board.

His proposed system would see only fully qualified architects allowed to submit planning applications.

If his bid is successful, Oldham will become one of seven architects sitting on the ARB board. The results of the election will be announced on 10 March, with candidates' statements being sent out at the beginning of February.
