FIONNA Kell has been appointed director of policy at Homes for Scotland (HFS).

The former inward investment manager at Clyde Gateway has been tasked with developing the organisation’s policy objectives as set out in its recently published five-year strategy.

HFS said her initial focus will be on the Scottish Government’s Housing Beyond 2021 discussion paper and the new Infrastructure Commission.

Fionna is a qualified town planner with a Masters in economic development. She said, “I am delighted to be joining HFS at such a pivotal time for the industry, with the need to increase housing delivery of all tenures also high on the radar of both the public and policy makers. I look forward to engaging with members and key stakeholders over the coming months on the challenges which need to be overcome if we are to successfully achieve this.”
