Scottish government to review design watchdog

  • Comment
The Scottish government has announced it will carry out a review of the country’s design watchdog, Architecture and Design Scotland (A+DS).

It is understood that the review will look into how A+DS’ policy, financial management and remit will be carried out.

A+DS chief executive Sebastian Tombs said: ‘After three-and-a-half years of growth and development, we have a clearer view of the ways in which we can champion the built environment and contribute to the delivery of the Scottish government’s National Outcomes.

‘This review will allow consideration of further consolidating governance changes, which were implemented during 2007, to clarify accountability and efficiency.

‘It should also allow for a refinement of A+DS' remit in the light of current planning reform, and an independent assessment of the most effective ways in which A+DS can deliver positive change to Scotland's built environment,’ added Tombs.
