New building adviser hunt to start
Plans are being finalised to find a replacement for Government chief construction adviser Paul Morrell, who is set to stand down later this year.
Mr Morrell, who chairs the Government Construction Board and reports to Cabinet Office minister Francis Maude, said last month that he will not seek a third term in the role although construction minister Mark Prisk has said no decision has been finalised.
The post will be advertised by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) in the coming weeks, once there are six months left until Mr Morrell's expected departure date in November, it is thought.
Mr Morrell, who also sits on the Green Construction Board, was appointed two years ago as the first ever chief construction officer to the Government. It is believed that there were more then 40 applicants for the role.>br?
A BIS spokesman said: "Paul Morrell's term as Government chief construction adviser finishes at the end of November this year. Discussions regarding the role are still ongoing and we will be making further details available in due course.''
