Ruth Reed's election manifesto

Making the RIBA work for all architects

Too many members question what they get for their membership of the Institute. The RIBA needs to:

• Focus on key objectives for all of the Institute’s activities making sure they are what the membership needs and expects the RIBA to do
• Draw up a clear programme of services and initiatives
• Tell the membership clearly what the RIBA does on its behalf.

Good architecture: delivery as well as design

I will lead the RIBA to promote the best of Architectural practice as well as the best of Architectural design. The RIBA needs to demonstrate to clients and government:

• The value we bring to their projects through good design
• The value we bring to their projects through effective delivery
• The benefit of a ‘value’ not ‘cost’ basis for fees

A flexible education for a changing profession

I will put in place policies to deliver:

• An affordable and flexible education for architecture students
• Recognition of the roles and responsibilities of practice in architectural education
• The embedding of employability in the curriculum

Positive action to improve the planning system

I will lobby government to give architects a leading role in reducing the load on the planning system by:

• Extending permitted development rights for applications submitted by architects
• Introducing a test of ‘necessity’ on the requirements for supporting information with applications
