Event description

Description

The Scottish Parliament Cross Party Group on Architecture and the Built Environment aims to maintain a forum of MSPs and others to promote and further the economic, social, environmental and cultural contributions that architecture and the planned environment make to the quality of life of Scotland's citizens. Also, while acknowledging the responsibilities devolved to the Scottish Parliament, to sustain a dialogue on Scottish architecture, planning and built environment in the European and World contexts.

The Meeting will take place in Committee Room 1

Linda Fabiani MSP, invites you to attend a meeting of the Cross-Party Group on Architecture + the Built Environment on 6th March 2018.

Members of the Scottish Parliament have shown an increased interest in the challenges of maintaining buildings under shared ownership with a Parliamentary Reception for the RICS ‘Tenement Health Check’ in November and a motion debating ‘Maintenance of Tenement Communal Property’ in January 2018.

Our next meeting will consider how the Scottish Parliament can help find solutions to the known challenges and how stakeholders can support a cross party working group on the topic. Our speakers will be David Gibbon MRICS MCABE a RICS Certified Historic Building Professional from the Tenement Action Group, Professor Douglas Robertson who has spent his career researching private housing issues and the third speaker is yet to be confirmed.

Their short presentations will be followed by an open discussion chaired by Tavish Scott MSP.

Although the meeting starts at 6pm it is advisable to arrive no later than 5.45pm to allow for security and time to get to the committee room. It will not be possible for latecomers to be escorted to the committee room.
