Kinsella to take top job at redevelopment authority

Former Midland Redevelopment Authority boss Kieran Kinsella has been appointed as chief executive of the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority, succeeding incumbent Tony Morgan.

Planning Minister John Day announced today the appointment, saying Mr Kinsella’s experience at Midland, Tourism WA and the Gascoyne Development Commission would be invaluable for the role.

“The MRA is responsible for delivering some of the most important projects ever seen in Perth and Mr Kinsella will play a central role in the transformation and renewal of the metropolitan area,” Mr Day said in a statement.

“From Elizabeth Quay, Perth City Link and Riverside, to the continued redevelopment of Midland, Armadale and Subiaco, the MRA is one of the key bodies responsible for ensuring Perth is able to meet the needs of, and capitalise on, its expected continued growth.”

Mr Day also paid tribute to the role Mr Morgan played in establishing the MRA.

““Tony Morgan ensured a smooth transition from the operation of four pre-existing redevelopment authorities to the new MRA,” he said.

“He also made a substantial contribution to both the redevelopment of Subiaco and East Perth as well as the planning and launch of the Perth City Link project and the revitalisation of Northbridge, to name just a few achievements.”

Meanwhile, Public Sector commissioner Mal Wauchope announced today Maree De Lacey had been appointed as the director general, Department of Water.

Ms De Lacey was previously a director of the Peel Development Commission.
