Architects, planners and academics were among those recognised in the new year’s honours.

Bob Allies and Graham Morrison of Allies & Morrison both received an OBE, as did Joanna Van Heyningen.

Ros Kerslake, chief executive of the Prince’s Regeneration Trust, Irene McAra-McWilliam, head of the school of design at Glasgow School of Art, and Trevor Dannatt, the architect, writer and Royal Academician, were also given OBEs.

Pat Borer, co-creator of the Centre for Alternative Technology in Wales, received an MBE, along with John Worthington, director of the Academy of Urbanism.

Alice Lester, manager at the Planning Advisory Service, Nottinghamshire planning consultant Malcolm Sharp and Peter Eversden, chair of the London Forum of Amenity and Civic Societies, all received MBEs for services to planning.

Maurice Howard, professor of art history at the University of Sussex was honoured “for services to higher education and architectural heritage”.

There were also honours for five housing association executives and an OBE for Peter John, leader of Southwark council which has been criticised for its handling of the regeneration of the Heygate Estate.

    Can we also have the names of any architects who turned down an "honour"?

  • SSMN, perhaps we could have the names of the "Architects" given honours for services to Architecture, who don't actually have Architecture qualifications in the UK?

    Hint: look at last years list...

    These honours are all a load of bollocks anyway. They're often given for the lowest of motives (see the current issue of Private Eye for two pages of interesting examples).

    Any architect registered in any EU Member State is entitled to practise in any other Member State. To pratice in the UK you do not need to hold a UK qualification. Similarly, a UK-qualified architect is entitled to practice in any other EU Member State.

    Quote from http://tinyurl.com/h6okfa9

    "To work as an architect in another EU country, you must apply to the authority that oversees the profession in that country, providing proof of your qualifications. The authority must:
    acknowledge your application within 1 month of receiving it, and ask you missing but necessary documents to process the application
    assess your qualifications, and decide whether to grant your application within 3 months (or 4 months for certain complicated cases in the area of non automatic recognition)
    If you do not accept their decision, you can appeal to the relevant court in that country"
