IHBC Scotland Branch Response

With great sadness we relay news that Dave Sutton, a longstanding IHBC member who served until the last AGM on the IHBC Scotland Committee, died on 26th May 2020. Dave had worked in North Lanarkshire and South Gloucestershire Councils, private practice, community and voluntary roles; he served Bristol Civic Society, and as a Bristol City Councillor, and Cambuslang Community Council. Dave brought a wealth of knowledge, experience, commitment and energy to historic environment causes. Originally from Belfast he trained in architecture in Sheffield University, and worked and lived in Western England until he moved to North Lanarkshire in 2007. He was trustee and secretary of Glasgow Building Preservation Trust and he was active as a mentor in Planning Democracy.

Fellow IHBC Scotland Branch Committee members have described Dave as another of us who chose to be the grit in the oyster, a good team leader, persistent, often irascible, an exceptionally strong practitioner and encourager in getting things done. He recently represented us in the SHED (Scottish Historic Environment Data) programme board, defending the responsilibity of local authorities in such matters as curtilage, and he observed interminable NPF4 consultations. He made a difference in the realms of built heritage, the wider environment, and communites. Dave had a great love of life, music, art, people and travel, and in the last 5 years during retirement could enjoy more time at his holiday home in Crete and his stained glass design hobby. We will certainly miss him, and our thoughts and condolences are with his wife Nancy and other family at this sad time.

Former colleague Richard Cartwright and the IHBC Scotland branch committee.
