  • Comment

Jane Briginshaw, architect and former design director at Partnerships for Schools, has been appointed head of design and sustainability at the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA)

Briginshaw will take responsibility for all design and sustainability projects and develop a national strategy to ensure HCA housing is value for money and good quality.

She said: ‘There are few higher-profile and more critically important roles than pushing forward the sustainability agenda, in delivering new homes and regenerating places, and I am looking forward to being part of a core team that will be at the forefront of this.’

Trevor Beattie, director of strategy at HCA added: ‘Jane has extensive experience in this field and I am very pleased [we have] recruited someone of such high calibre.

‘She will ensure that we continue to lead the way with our environmental, sustainability and design policy for housing and regeneration.’

Briginshaw previously served as head of design for the Department for Children, Schools and Families.

She is due to take up her new post, based in London, on 19 April.
