Congratulations to Laura Murray from our Melbourne office who was elected as President of the Planning Institute of Australia (Victoria Chapter).

Laura was first elected to the committee in 2015 and has held the role of Women’s Planning Network (WPN) Convenor since 2013.  

As a Senior Associate at APP, this is an outstanding achievement for Laura and clear recognition of her standing and reputation within Melbourne’s Planning Sector. The PIA provides an excellent platform to continue the growth of our Planning Services, which Laura has played an instrumental role in progressing that part of our business in recent months.

Laura joined APP as a Senior Associate in 2015 and has more than 12 years’ experience in statutory and strategic planning for public and private clients in both Australia and the UK. Her expertise encompasses growth management frameworks, structure plans and policy review, in addition to large-scale, complex statutory projects across a wide range of sectors, including national retail and petroleum rollouts, fast food developments, high-density mixed-use, multi-unit residential, heritage, retirement living developments and waste recovery centres.

In her role as President, Laura will be responsible for championing the PIA’s activities and will lead and support the development of high quality planning professionals throughout Victoria.  

Congratulations to Laura on this significant achievement.
