Architecture and Design Scotland(A&DS) has welcomed today’s announcement, from the Scottish Government, that a review of its policy, financial management and remit is to be carried out.
Sebastian Tombs, Chief Executive of A&DS, reacted positively to the announcement.
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’s 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 Scotland’s built environment.
