12 Nov 2015

Cities Summit Image

Chair of the Fishermans Bend Ministerial Advisory Committee, Meredith Sussex, will join a host of leading Australian and international thinkers on November 30 and December 1 to discuss future planning for creating more liveable cities.

Ms Sussex will join an illustrious panel of leading planning experts as part of the Creating Healthy Cities Summit 2015 to explore how to build cities and influence the national policy agenda.

International experts attending include managing director for planning and transport for London, Richard de Cani, and professor of city and regional planning at University of California, Robert Cervero.

Federal shadow minister for cities, transport and infrastructure and tourism Anthony Albanese and the chair of Plan Melbourne Professor Roz Hansen will also be in attendance.

As the chair of the ministerial advisory committee on Australia’s biggest ever urban renewal project, Ms Sussex said she anticipated Fishermans Bend to be the centre of much discussion at the summit.

“The conference is all about good planning and creating healthy liveable cities for people,” she said.

“This is naturally a big theme of the Fishermans Bend urban renewal project, which will be the centre of much discussion at the summit.”

The Creating Healthy Cities Summit 2015, hosted by the Australian Davos Connection (ADC) Forum, will be held at the RACV City Club, on Bourke St, Melbourne.
