There’s red tape, but then there’s the ultra-crimson, unfathomable bureaucracy which appears to have little purpose other than to annoy, flabbergast and frustrate everyone involved. Believe it or not, the culprit is everyone’s favourite administrative powerhouse, the RIBA. To be absolutely accurate, Portland Place. Last week, the bijou but perfectly-formed Lancaster and Westmorland Society of Architects (LAWSA) innocently asked HQ whether it could have the names of all RIBA-registered designers in the area so it could compile a thorough and handy local brochure. To little LAWSA’s surprise the answer was an unequivocal ‘no’. Apparently to do so would infringe Data Protection regulations. Here’s to joined-up thinking and the regions. Well done RIBA.
