Colin takes lead on regeneration.

Colin Garbutt has been appointed regeneration director at the Newcastle office of project management and construction consultants, Hall & Partners.

Colin, who lives in Cramlington, brings over 37 years' experience of the housing sector to lead the regeneration team and joins Hall & Partners from the Home Group where he was latterly director of marketing and communications.

A past chairman of the Northern Counties branch of the Chartered Institute of Housing and regional chair of the National Housing Federation, he is a well respected housing professional with a proven track record within the sector.

He commented: "The regeneration of older urban areas is currently one of the greatest challenges within the housing sector but which also represents tremendous opportunities for neighbourhoods to decide their own future.

"Hall & Partners already has a first class reputation for its work in this field and this new post is to head a dedicated department which will build on the previous work in finding innovative ways to regenerate estates and whole neighbourhoods.

"Although the team will be based in Newcastle, we are already working throughout the country at a very local level where we listen to what people want and then distil these ideas into what is practically and economically possible.

"On the larger scale, the work is to understand national policy and then make it happen locally."

Ray Hall, director of Hall & Partners, added: "Colin's reputation within the housing sector comes before him and we see his appointment as strengthening the services we offer to the housing sector."

Hall & Partners has offices in Newcastle, Leeds and Sheffield, managing over pounds 200 million worth of construction projects each year.
