Anderson to head up Scottish design watchdog

  • Comment

Karen Anderson has been named as the new chair of Scottish architecture watchdog A+DS

The founding partner of Glasgow-based practice Anderson Bell, and a former-tutor at the University of Strathclyde’s Department of Architecture, Anderson will take up her post on 1 April, succeeding current A+DS chair Raymond Young.

Minister for Culture Fiona Hyslop, who oversaw the appointment, said Anderson’s ‘impressive’ background in architecture and regeneration would help drive the work of Scotland’s answer to CABE.

‘This appointment marks the first step in implementing the new simplified governance structure, as recommended in the recent review of the organisation,’ said Hyslop. ‘Karen will assume responsibility for the new body as it emerges as an executive non-departmental public body in April.’

Anderson said she was delighted by her appointment. ‘I am ready to help drive forward the Scottish Government’s ambitions to deliver planning reform and support the creation of a better built environment in Scotland.’

Anderson was previously a commissioner of RFACS.
