Western Australian Planning Commission chair David Caddy will spend another two years in the top job after the state government extended his appointment until 2023.

Mr Caddy was first appointed to the role in 2018, after more than 40 decades working across the planning sector holding senior management roles and specialising in statutory planning, strategic and structure planning, corporate property portfolio management, policy formulation and planning advocacy. 

He has also founded a number of planning businesses, worked with and for both the private and public sectors, and served as a councillor for the City of Nedlands.

Mr Caddy was also a founding board member of the Local Government Planners Association.

The state government has decided to extend the contracts of all serving WAPC members until December 2022, a decision designed to ensure continuity in decision-making while the commission is responsible for proposals lodged with the state’s new Development Assessment Unit (SDAU).

The temporary planning body is designed to streamline the approvals process and expedite projects that could aid in the state’s COVID-19 economic recovery.
