Alexandra Notay has been appointed to the board of the Geospatial Commission.
She replaces Dame Kate Barker whose term ended on 30 June 2021.
Notay is placemaking and investment director at PfP Capital, the fund and asset management arm of Places for People Group, overseeing a UK-wide residential strategy. She has also published books and reports on real estate.
She said: “I see the improved and more integrated use of location data as absolutely integral to the real estate investment, housing and planning sector’s contribution to our post-Covid recovery.”
Notay joins a group of nine commissioners, led by chair Sir Bernard Silverman, overseeing the work of the Geospatial Commission. They are responsible for providing expert, impartial advice to the government on geospatial data, including on strategic priorities and value for money, to inform the UK Geospatial Strategy.
