Now a consultant specialising in land and property, his current projects include delivering a sustainable urban extension of 5,500 new homes (with retail, employment, schools, community buildings and associated infrastructure) and elsewhere the planning and servicing of land for 500 houses with delivery of affordable housing, care home and shops. He is a director of the family property company, Wordie Properties Limited, based in Glasgow.
Alan and Diana have been married for 34 years and their three children (all Salters - Victoria, Rosanna and William) have “flown the nest” which has since been filled with a variety of animals, guinea fowl and recently two colonies of honey bees.
Alan’s hobbies include bell-ringing (campanology), flying a flex-wing microlight, gardening, research into a Grandfather’s involvement in Antarctica (especially on Shackleton’s Endurance expedition 1914 – 1917) and learning more about this wonderful yet fragile ice covered continent.
