City councillor honoured by Planning Institute of Australia

QUEENSLAND'S longest serving city councillor Paul Tully has been recognised by the Planning Institute of Australia (PIA) for his contribution to the planning profession.

The council's Planning and Development Committee chairman was acknowledged as an Honorary Fellow of the Institute.

PIA National President and former Ipswich City Council development manager Brendan Nelson said Cr Tully had made a distinguished contribution to the planning profession and the PIA.

"Cr Tully has championed significant planning and development projects including a number that have received PIA State and National Awards," Mr Nelson said.

"He has also championed continuous improvement in development assessment processes and decision making, including use of information technology to improve delivery of planning services."

Cr Tully said he was proud of council's achievements particularly the Ipswich Heritage Program, the Ipswich Planning Scheme and master planning for Springfield and Ripley Valley.

"I want to thank the members of the PIA and the planning staff at Ipswich City Council who are so dedicated to their profession and constantly seek the best outcomes to enhance liveability for residents," he said.
