The Western Australian Planning Commission’s Infrastructure Coordinating Committee has appointed two new industry members.
Marion Fulker and Greg Martin have been appointed as professional representatives to the committee for two-year terms.
Western Australian Planning Minister, Donna Faragher, said the new appointments would bring significant industry experience and knowledge to the critical, state-wide infrastructure planning work of the committee and acknowledged the need for increased industry representation.
Ms Fulker was widely known as a strong advocate for the future development of Perth.
“As CEO of the Committee for Perth, Ms Fulker has worked to bring about change that will impact positively on the prosperity, sustainability, diversity and amenity of Perth,” Mrs Faragher said.
“She is also a former executive director with the Urban Development Institute of Australia (WA) and has a wide range of experience on conservation, heritage and infrastructure development issues for both state and local governments.”
Mr Martin has state and federal government experience and currently works in private practice. Mr Martin has worked as commissioner for Main Roads and the Director General of the Department for Planning and Infrastructure.
“More recently, Mr Martin served as chairman of the National Transport Commission so he will bring a diverse set of skills and knowledge to this infrastructure advisory role,” Mrs Faragher said.
Mrs Faragher thanked outgoing member Dean Davidson for his contribution and announced that all other Infrastructure Coordinating Committee members had been reappointed.
The Infrastructure Coordinating Committee advises the Western Australian Planning Commission on planning for the provision of physical and community infrastructure across Western Australia.
