You should have good practical construction and contract knowledge and experience. A good understanding of delivering appropriate design in terms of character and appearance but within the context of providing good value in both the short and long term. As you may be managing external consultants, an understanding of the importance of a project brief, and appointing and managing consultants would be advantageous; as would a knowledge of the relevant statutory legislation and best practise from SEPA and SNH. Experience of internal cross section working such as with engineers and external partnership working with communities would be an advantage.
