List of Quangos to be Axed published today

The full list of Quangos to be axed by the Coalition Government reforms was published this morning – a quick scan and we’ve spotted the following of interest to Architecture…

Architects Registration Board – retained
English Heritage – retained
Building Regulations Advisory Comittee – retained

However, the Homes and Communities Agency has been earmarked for “substantial reform” and CABE (the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment) is “still under consideration – still considering the options for reform” (whatever that means!)

The full list is available here.
