Our Board

Our Board is responsible for setting our strategic direction, monitoring performance, managing risk and maintaining compliance.

Land Redevelopment Committees

We have established Land Redevelopment Committees for each of our redevelopment areas to enable community and local government to be involved in the development and delivery of our urban renewal projects. The committee members possess a range of experience in local government, planning and urban renewal and demonstrate a strong understanding of local community needs.

In November 2017 the reform of the land development agencies was announced with its intention to streamline the number of boards and committees to achieve the Government's commitment to efficient and effective service delivery.

Consequently the MRA Land Redevelopment Committees were rationalised and consolidated with a reduction in the number of members. In August 2018, Cabinet approved the following common and alternate members to the five committees:

  • Ms Karen Hyde, Deputy Chair
  • Professor Geoffrey London, Member
  • Mr James Hewitt, Member
  • Mr David Hartree, Alternate Member
  • Ms Diana Wearing-Smith, Alternate Member
