Territory Partnering Board


The Territory Partnering Board (TPB) was established as the primary mechanism for managing oversight of Hub North Scotland’s performance and ensuring best value from its activities.

It has senior representatives from each of the 16 public sector clients and Hub North Scotland.

The TPB has two sub-boards – a strategic board and an operational board.

The TPB and both sub-boards are chaired by client representatives. Along with monitoring performance, the TPB also sets out the vision, goals and objectives for the Hub North programme and ensures it reflects local, regional and national priorities and policies.

It set up the North Infrastructure Commission to create a programmed approach for delivering those objectives.

The shared vision of the TPB is to:

‘Improve the life of a person and make the region a place where people want to live and support this through collaborative Place-based, integrated and co-located infrastructure.’

That vision is underpinned by the following core priorities:

  • Making communities more attractive for investment by having a coherent Place-based plan
  • Supporting Scotland’s transition to a Net Zero Carbon society with committed timescales
  • Supporting investment in affordable, social and key worker housing and supported living, coming home and care accommodation

Jonathan Christie

Territory Programme Director

Jonathan has extensive experience in bringing public and private sector partners together to deliver infrastructure that is place-based, inclusive and with net zero carbon.

He also connects other Scottish Futures Trust (SFT) workstreams and other central government agencies into the hub programme to ensure the best possible outcome.

Prior to joining the SFT, he led the quantity surveying and programme management team at Aberdeenshire Council. He began his career as a chartered quantity surveyor in a top five consultancy firm.

Fun fact: Jonathan loves to sing but admits he sings all the wrong words to every song.

“I love working on this site and watching the buildings take shape. It is going to be some place when it is finished.”
