The Greater London Authority has appointed one of Hackney council’s top officers to head its new directorate of development and environment.

Fiona Fletcher-Smith, who is currently Hackney’s corporate director of neighbourhoods and regeneration, will be responsible for delivering mayor Boris Johnson’s revised London Plan.

As director of development and environment, she will also be responsible for delivery of major projects like Crossrail and the Thames Gateway, aiding London’s economic recovery through the current downturn, and the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.

She takes over the directorate of development and environment directorate, which was created following a reorganization of the GLA.

Leo Boland, GLA chief executive, said: ‘Fiona brings with her a wealth of public sector experience most recently working for a borough at the heart of the preparations for the London Olympic and Paralympic Games.
