Morgan, Cutler to lead EPRA and SRA

SYD Shea’s removal from the Department of Conservation and Land Management has also lopped Wally Cox from the top of the East Perth and Subiaco redevelopment authorities.

Dr Cox is now acting executive director of CALM. Besides running the organisation, he is responsible for steering it towards its break-up into the Conservation Commission, the Forest Products Commission and the Conservation Department.

Legislation is being drafted to separate the

organisation’s forest products activities from its

conservation role.

Dr Cox said, despite his removal from the helm of the two redevelopment authorities, they were “still motoring along nicely”.

Tony Morgan is temporary head of the EPRA while Colin Cutler holds provisional charge of the SRA.

Dr Cox said he was looking forward to is new role.

“I started as an agricultural scientist. What I’m doing with CALM fits my background,” he said.

Dr Cox spent some time heading the Department of Regional Development before moving on to the Water Authority’s top job.

He took over the running of the EPRA in 1995. His work with the project included overseeing the $15 million clean up of the old Perth Gasworks site which is now a public park.

The project won the Urban Development Institute of Australia’s national award for excellence in 1998.

Dr Cox’s success with the EPRA led to his appointment as the head of the Subiaco Redevelopment Authority which is responsible for the redevelopment between Salvado Road and Roberts Road.

Just weeks ago he was appointed to form the Midland Redevelopment Authority, a job which will now fall to someone else.
