Linda Kelly

Linda has been integral in the Urban Planning team in working to ensure that the amenity of Mosman is maintained and enhanced through good planning outcomes. Her notable achievements include:

  • running the Mosman Design Awards to celebrate outstanding contributions to the built environment and heritage of Mosman;
  • tirelessly campaigning to ensure that the visual impact of development, view sharing and tree dominance remain important considerations in the Mosman Scenic Protection Area;
  • the preparation of numerous plans and policies; and
  • striving for excellence in engagement and communication with the introduction of the Mosman Planning website and leading projects that have won awards from the Planning Institute of Australia.

Linda has moved on in her career to academia as a lecturer in the Bachelor of Planning program at Macquarie University. In departing, Linda said “I love teaching and it’s great to be passing on my knowledge and experience to the next generation of planners. I have enjoyed working at Mosman and being part of the planning teams, both current and past, that care about making a positive impact for the future.”

We thank Linda for all her efforts over the years, and wish her all the best.
