“It’s great to see the continuation of key Commissioners, who will provide continuity in leading the implementation of the strategic planning embedded in the Metropolis of Three Cities report.”

“The Committee recognises and pays tribute to the excellent work undertaken by Heather Nesbitt in driving the Social agenda. Heather has been a passionate and tireless advocate for rebalancing our city. We look forward to working with Helen O’Loughlin, particularly on solving the affordable housing challenges facing our city.”
