Andrew Shirley appointed as Chief Surveyor.

Andrew said: “I am very pleased to continue my work at the CLA on a national level. Many of the issues I cover are core, long-standing issues facing CLA members and I look forward to helping them protect their interests.”

CLA Director General Helen Woolley said: “I am delighted to welcome Andrew to the national CLA team. His knowledge and experience is invaluable and he is dedicated to the traditional issues that have an impact on landowners.”
