Bob Allan, chief executive of Clackmannanshire Council, has been chosen as the man to head the Glasgow Housing Association, the non-profit making body set up to take forward the proposed housing stock transfer of the city's 90,000 council homes.

The Herald (24 June, p2) reported that Mr Allan, who will earn£95,000 a year as chief executive, beat of challenges from four other candidates including his former chief, David Cromley, the city's director of housing.

Mr Allan said: 'There will be no overnight miracle; there is no short-term solution. What there will be is a commitment to work with the Scottish executive, the city council, the interim management committee, and the tenants of Glasgow to create a modern, secure and cating environment. We want a Glasgow that our children and our children's children will be proud to inherit.'

Mr Allan has already been deeply involved in the project having been seconded from Clackmannanshire to develop the framework document for the proposed transfer, launched by first minister Donald Dewar earlier this year.
