Rebecca Moore will have the opportunity to shape the future design of Perth, after being appointed the state’s new government architect today.

Ms Moore, a registered architect with experience in Perth and London, will also serve as chair of the state design review panel.

In her new role, she will play a key role in the assessment of Metronet plans and significant development proposals to be determined by the Western Australian Planning Commission, and provide expert and independent advice to the planning minister and premier.

Ms Moore has most recently worked as a member of the State Administrative Tribunal for nearly a decade, and previously worked as a senior architect with Colin Moore Architect.

Planning Minister Rita Saffioti said with qualifications in architecture, planning and cultural heritage, and construction of the built environment, Ms Moore would bring a wealth of knowledge to guide delivery of the pipeline of projects that would support Western Australia’s economic recovery from COVID-19.

Ms Moore’s experience as a mediator and member of the State Administrative Tribunal will also enable her to provide clear guidance and design advice, early in the planning of major projects to ensure a high quality of built outcomes,” she said.

“We anticipate over the next 18-months up to 90 development proposals will require design review as part of the new approvals pathway for significant developments in addition to the continued rollout of METRONET and major transport infrastructure projects.”
