Congratulations Sam Burgess

20 June 2019

Village Building Company congratulates Queensland State Manager Sam Burgess on his recent appointment as President of the Ipswich Branch, Urban Development Institute of Australia.

Sam has been a member of the Branch Committee for the past two years and the appointment as President is a clear endorsement of the regard he is held in by local industry peers.

As President, Sam will assume a key governance role as well as engaging with developers and consultants in the Ipswich region on matters of concern to the development industry. He will also participate in a subcommittee reviewing the development of Ipswich City Council’s new planning scheme.

Reflecting on the appointment Sam said:

“It is an honour to represent industry peers in this way. I am looking forward to being at the coalface of engagement with key stakeholders and Council, especially during the drafting of the new planning scheme, which will set the direction for development in the region for at least the next 10 years.”  

Sam’s appointment took effect in April 2019 for a term of two years.
