Glasgow heritage body promotes deputy director to top job

A CHARITY that issues grants, to help preserve Glasgow’s heritage – in addition to archiving the city’s built environment and leading debate about the city’s urban future – has promoted its deputy director to the role of director.

Niall Murphy had been deputy director of Glasgow City Heritage Trust for the last six years, having previously been the organisation’s grants officer.

Says the Trust, here: “Originally from Hong Kong, Niall studied at the Mackintosh School of Architecture [in Glasgow] and practiced architecture in Edinburgh, Berlin and Hong Kong before settling in Glasgow.

“Having retrained as a conservation architect with conservation specialists, Peter Drummond Architects, Niall joined the Trust as grants officer in 2016 and has been deputy director since mid-2017.”

It adds: “Niall is currently chair of Govanhill Baths Building Preservation Trust. Previously, [he] was chair of Pollokshields Heritage, planning convener for Pollokshields Community Council and a member of the Glasgow Urban Design Panel.

“From 2016 – 2018 he was a member of the Development Management Working Group for the Scottish Government’s Planning Review.”
