Arb chair replaced after less than a year

Alison White replaces Nabila Zulfiqar after government review

The Arb’s new chair is Alison White, who was succeeded in her previous job as the government’s lobbying tsar by former RIBA chief executive Harry Rich.

White replaces lawyer Nabila Zulfiqar who was on the Arb board from 2013 and only re-elected as chair in July. Following the MHCLG’s periodic review of the Arb the government decided the constitution of its board should change in line with current regulatory practice.

White starts work this month, along with a newly appointed board of five architect and five lay members (see box, below). There were more than 130 applications.
