The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) has appointed a new chairperson, helping it reform land use planning in WA, and delivering on the State Government’s commitment to creating an accessible, streamlined and strategic planning system to improve local communities.
David Caddy has been appointed to the office of chairperson for the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) by Her Excellency the Honourable Kerry Sanderson AC, Governor of Western Australia, for a three-year term starting 16 April 2018.
Mr Caddy has more than 40 years of professional planning and leadership experience in the private and public sectors.
For almost 30 years, he has served as managing director, and more recently senior director, of The Planning Group Australia (TPG + Place Match), consulting on a number of key State Government redevelopment projects.
Minister for Planning, Rita Saffioti, said, “Mr Caddy, in the role of chairperson, will help to drive change and foster innovation in the systems of infrastructure and land use planning in WA.
“He will help deliver the government’s commitment to reforming the current land planning system through strategically aligned planning decisions across the state.
“The WAPC is a critical plank in the delivery of a more compact and connected Perth metropolitan area, with the implementation of METRONET.”
