IPAA  SA places a large focus on strategic forums and events, and therefore are excited to announce the launching of a new series proudly supported by Wallmans Lawyers. The new series is titled ‘Inside the Project- Examining the Challenges, Risks and Processes inside some of SA’s biggest economic projects’. These will be informal interview/panel type sessions, where senior Public Sector Leaders are interviewed about a specific project and provide the opportunity for State Government employee audience members to gain exclusive access to ‘the inside story’ of a project.

Our first guest for the ‘Inside the Project’ is John Hanlon, Chief Executive, Renewal SA, who joins us to discuss the Riverbank project with our audience.

John Hanlon

Chief Executive
Renewal SA

John Hanlon was appointed to the position of Chief Executive of Renewal SA in July 2014. John plays a central role in driving urban renewal and economic activities on behalf of the Government, including key priorities around accelerating the renewal of neighbourhoods, increasing the supply and diversity of affordable housing, enhancing the vibrancy of our communities, and significantly contributing to achieving outcomes for urban development through The 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide and the South Australian Government’s Integrated Transport and Land Use Plan.

Areas that are being led by John include the Creating a Vibrant City program that has been instrumental in revitalising and bringing life to some of the city’s once disused spaces and laneways, the State Government’s urban development initiative to renew 4,500 old Housing Trust homes located within 10 kilometres of the city and the revitalisation of the Riverbank Precinct.

Previously, John held the role of Deputy Chief Executive in the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure where he was directly responsible for the State’s Strategic Direction, in urban development and transport planning.

John will outline the Governments public policy positions in all these areas and discuss the complex array of issues that are inevitably raised when dealing with such high profile activities within our State.
