Director of City Development statement

Dave Anderson, Director of City Development, has intimated his decision to resign from the Council to pursue consultancy interests in economic development, investment and urban regeneration across the UK and Europe .

Dave joined the Council in 2008 from Scottish Enterprise. During his 5 years as Director he has been involved in a number of significant projects across the city including the development of the Edinburgh Bioquarter, the extension of the EICC, developing the Council's resilience plans and attracting major investors to the city, with Edinburgh remaining a leader in Europe for foreign direct investment.

Dave made a significant contribution to the economic development of the City during his time with the Council with economic successes arising from his innovative and entrepreneurial approach to his role as Director of City Development. His decision to leave the Council brings to a close the investigation into his knowledge and management of the issues under scrutiny in the Council's Property Conservation service. It can be confirmed that the investigation has not revealed any evidence to doubt Dave's honesty, integrity and entrepreneurial abilities. We wish him well in his future endeavours.
