Former CIH London chair dies #ukhousing

Brian Queen, 68, held senior housing roles in councils including Brent, Hillingdon and Merton during his career.

He was also well-known for being the first project manager of the National Mobility Office in the 1980s, which ran the National Mobility Scheme, aimed at helping social tenants move to more suitable housing.

He was an activist member of CIH’s London Branch and of the CIH council for many years and chaired the London board in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

He died aged 68 following an accident, and a funeral was held before Christmas.

Richard Kitson, who was on the council with Mr Queen, said “Such a tragedy and a sad loss to the profession.”

Jan Taranczuk, a consultant and friend of Mr Queen’s, added: “We sadly say goodbye to housing royalty. Brian Queen was a staunch supporter of CIH, an ex-chair of CIH London and a well-respected housing professional. Social housing will be poorer for his absence.”
