A new CEO of the Victorian Planning Authority has been appointed to complement planning for the state’s population growth and a renewed focus on regional Victoria.
State planning minister Richard Wynne announced that Stuart Moseley, an experienced planning expert and public servant, is to take up the role.
“Stuart Moseley’s long list of achievements and experience will be a great asset for the VPA as it sets out to plan for a strong and sustainable Victoria for many decades to come,” Wynne said.
“He has the runs on the board as a distinguished public servant and a meticulous planning expert. He’s just the person to lead the VPA as it begins a renewed focus on planning in regional Victoria.”
A registered planner and a fellow of the Planning Institute of Australia, Moseley is a former CEO of Adelaide City Council and general manager of information and strategy at the South Australian Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure. He was also national vice president of the Urban Development Institute of Australia.
Most recently, Moseley was deputy director general of the Queensland Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning during the period of such reforms as the new planning legislation and the affordable living and design policy.
His appointment comes at a time when the VPA is focusing on planning for the rapid growth of Victoria’s population, which is expanding faster than all other Australian states and is expected to reach over 10 million by 2051.
Mr Moseley will take over the CEO position in June from Peter Seamer, who is moving into a new government position.
