Derek Lyddon FRTPI
We are sorry to announce the death of Derek Lyddon FRTPI. Derek was a key player in Scottish planning throughout the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s when he was Chief Planning Officer at the Scottish Office. These were times of immense change in Scotland and Derek helped ensure planning was central in taking these forward. Derek was a fellow of the Institute and, amongst other things, an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, a Chair of the Planning Exchange and the President of the International Society of City and Regional Planners. He was made a Companion of the Order of the Bath (CB) in 1984.
Pam Ewen, Convenor of RTPI Scotland, said "Derek was a major influence in planning in Scotland – and further afield - over a number of decades. He obviously immersed himself in his work and was an important advocate for the role that planning and planners can play in working towards a better Scotland. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends."
