Western Australia Minister for Heritage John Castrilli today announced the appointment of a new member and four reappointments to the Heritage Council of Western Australia.

Mr. Castrilli said developer Lloyd Clark would replace Professor Norman Etherington who had moved interstate.

Mr. Clark is Managing Director of Match, which specialises in the development of heritage properties. Match won last year’s Heritage Council Awards for excellence in adaptive re-use.

Adaptive re-use successfully blends heritage and new development, revitalising heritage buildings and ensuring they are conserved as ‘living’ evidence of WA’s past.

Four members, whose terms had expired, will serve a further four years on the State Government’s advisory and statutory body on heritage.

They are:

  •  Real Estate Institute of WA Chief Executive Anne Arnold
  • National Trust WA Vice-President Professor David Dolan
  • WA Local Government Association representative and Armadale City Councillor Henry Zelones
  • Architect Philip Griffiths.

The Minister said he was very pleased these members had agreed to give their time, expertise and experience to enhance the work of the Heritage Council.

“The appointments ensure that the interests of the community, owners, heritage professionals and local government are well represented on the council.” Mr. Castrilli said.

“The mix of community representatives and professionals will also ensure the Heritage Council is well equipped to deal with the many issues facing the conservation and development of our significant heritage assets.”

The council comprises nine members and is chaired by Marion Fulker, Chief Executive Officer of the Committee for Perth.
