Kate Henderson has been appointed as the new Chief Executive of the National Housing Federation.

Currently the Chief Executive of the Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA), Kate Henderson will take up the post in early October. She succeeds David Orr who announced in January that he would be stepping down from the role this autumn.

Over the past decade Kate Henderson has raised the TCPA's profile through a range of campaigns and policy initiatives, most notably around Garden Cities, affordable housing, poverty and climate change.

She has been involved in a number of government panels and independent commissions, including the Lyons Housing Review and the Raynsford Review of Planning.

She has co-authored various books on planning, including Rebuilding Britain: Planning for a Better Future and, more recently, The Art of Building a Garden City: Building New Communities for the 21st Century.
