Architect struck off at first ARB public hearing

  • Comment

The Architects Registration Board has made its first conduct committee judgment in an open session.

The first case concerned Cumbrian architect Richard Lindsay in a hearing open to the press and public at the arb's hq in central London just before Christmas. Lindsay's conduct was referred to committee by a lay complainant and his name erased from the register - the board's stiffest penalty. The fact that the case is in the period during which Lindsay may make an appeal prevents the reporting of further details.

A spokesperson said cases would be heard probably every month, with the next one set for the end of January. A similar system of open conduct committee cases is used by the British Medical Association, subjecting doctors to the full glare of publicity and news reports.
