Design Council director Diane Haigh resigns

Design Council director Diane Haigh has announced her departure. She was director of Design Review at CABE from 2007 and joined the Design Council when the two organisations merged in April 2011.  Over the last six months, she has supported the organisation through a period of change, including re-establishing national design reviews.

Design Council chief executive David Kester said: "Di Haigh has been a great asset to Design Council Cabe as an architect, thinker and leader of Design Review.  I am very grateful to her for all her help bringing CABE into the Design Council.  We now open a new chapter and I look forward to appointing her successor."

Haigh said: "Over the last four years it has been a huge privilege to work with so many terrific people, firstly at CABE as director of Design Review and latterly as director of CABE at the Design Council. It has been a fascinating time for me, having been involved in discussions across a broad range of developments. I am most grateful for the commitment of all those who have engaged with us in making design reviews into real opportunities to strengthen scheme proposals.

"Having now achieved the successful merger of the CABE team into the Design Council as one integrated organisation, it seems a good moment for me to move on to fresh challenges. New ways of working are called for to respond to the changing context and a new management team can now take the vision forward. I wish them well in continuing the vital contribution that Design Council Cabe can make to achieving sustainable well-designed development for communities across the country."
