Uncertain Future at Design Council Cabe as Director Steps Down

Diane Haigh direector of Design Council Cabe and former director of design review at Cabe is stepping down.

Haigh said: “It has been a fascinating time for me, having been involved in discussions across a broad range of developments. I am most grateful for the commitment of all those who have engaged with us in making design reviews into real opportunities to strengthen scheme proposals.”

“Having now achieved the successful merger of the Cabe team into the Design Council as one integrated organisation, it seems a good moment for me to move on to fresh challenges.

“New ways of working are called for to respond to the changing context, and a new management team can now take the vision forward.”


Diane was notably absent from the launch of the Bishop review a couple of weeks ago which would effectively replace most national design review with a series of regional (if that word isnt banned) panels. The Design Council’s Chief Executive David Kester seems to have a different vision of how to take things forward.
