- Sally Malone, from Albany, appointed to the Heritage Council of WA
- New appointments and reappointments to the Heritage Council's Register and Development committees
An Albany-based public place designer specialising in landscapes, urban design, trails and interpretation has been appointed to the Heritage Council of Western Australia, for a three-year term which commenced on July 1, 2017.
With more than 20 years' experience across the public and private sectors, Ms Sally Malone has been involved in various projects including large metropolitan public place construction and smaller designs for regional shires.
Ms Malone has also served on various boards including the Southern Ports and Albany Port Authorities, Regional Development Australia Great Southern and the Committee for Albany.
Heritage engineer Ian Maitland OAM and historian Lucy Hair have also been appointed to the Heritage Council's Register and Development committees.
Comments attributed to Heritage Minister David Templeman:
"Ms Malone's understanding of the planning process, design and sustainable community, and regional development will ensure she makes a valuable contribution to the Heritage Council.
"Having worked with local governments and communities across the State, she has a particular interest in issues such as conserving, adapting, interpreting and promoting culture heritage.
"This is an area that is becoming more pressing over time as the rural populations decline and our significant heritage fabric ages.
"Ms Malone's appointment ensures that the Heritage Council continues to have someone with excellent experience and knowledge in the regions, following Mr Heaver's retirement after eight years on the board.
"As an architect based in Albany, Mr Heaver helped shape contemporary approaches to heritage practice in WA and brought a strong regional voice to the Heritage Council.
"I would like to thank Mr Heaver for his service."
