Village CEO new President of Property Council ACT

26 February 2019

Chief Executive Officer of Village, Travis Doherty has been appointed as President of the Property Council of Australia – ACT.

Elected to lead the Council for the next two years, Travis will be supported by Arabella Rhode - Senior Development Manager of Lendlease Development and General Manager of Amalgamated Property Group, Phil O’Brien. 

 “Canberra is undergoing a period of huge transformation, and never has it been more important than now to get the strategic planning and infrastructure needed for our city to meet the needs of our community, Travis said.

“As our city grows and transforms, we must also keep in mind the role we can play for our neighbours as the city which is the economic heart of our region.

“That means we have to plan our city to meet the needs of not just Canberrans, but position ourselves strategically to encourage investment and economic growth of our city for the more than 1 million people who live and work in the region.

 

“The challenge remains – how we keep the very best of what we all love about Canberra, but grow up to the be the city we want to become and there is enormous potential and opportunity in that.

 

“Key to this is ensuring that issues like fair taxes and charges, outcomes focused planning, genuine housing choice for Canberrans, building design and quality and delivering density and liveability along transport corridors remain front and centre for everyone in our community.

 

“I look forward to advocating on these critical issues during the biggest period of urban renewal our city has ever seen,” Travis concluded.

Congratulations Travis, we look forward to the insights the next two years will bring.
