Helen Coonan will be stepping down as Chair of the Placemaking NSW independent advisory committee with immediate effect, following her interim appointment as the Executive Chair of Crown Resorts.
Helen will be missed. During her years at the helm of the former Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority, latterly Place Management NSW, Helen actively and passionately championed some of our most precious precincts and public spaces.
In a relatively short time, Helen and the Board have also made some great strides in helping us on our journey towards our vision to create great places and inject new life and ideas into the management and operation of Placemaking NSW.
In the interim, David Borger will serve as acting Chair of the Placemaking NSW independent advisory committee until a new Chair is confirmed. The advisory committee will continue to support our ongoing efforts to streamline the planning, development, and activation functions that enable the creation of great public, community, residential and commercial spaces.
