£60,000 post to focus on quality of housing design

Architects have welcomed the announcement by the Ministry of Housing that it wants to hire a head of architecture.

It comes in the same month that housing secretary James Brokenshire established the controversial Better Building Beautiful Commission (BBBBC) under the chairmanship of Roger Scruton.

The department is now advertising for an experienced housing architect to advise on architectural policy and practice. The full-time post comes with a salary of up to £62,000.
