Council Chair of Planetary Health appointed

By Blue Mountains City Council
Posted: 6 Apr 2021
Blue Mountains Mayor Mark Greenhill has taken a Mayoral Minute to the Council appointing Cr Mick Fell to Chair a committee that will assist with planning the Planetary Health initiative.

Last year partnerships with universities were announced where the former golf course site would be used for a leadership centre, focused on planetary health.

Mayor Greenhill said: “Following both Monash and Western Sydney universities signing a Memorandum of Understanding with the Council, work is commencing to make this proposal a reality.

“I presented my resolution to Council because I wanted a committee to be formed to help advise the development of the Planetary Health initiative.

“I have asked Cr Mick Fell to take this position and he has agreed and been elected to it.

“I chose Cr Fell because he has done more than anyone to bring the concept and the parties to the point of discussion. His work has helped lead to the proposition now commencing. Cr Fell’s role needs to be recognised.

“This plan will see exciting use of the site with great potential benefit for the Blue Mountains community and beyond. This is something the Blue Mountains has needed for a very long time.

“Cr Fell has my confidence to take this forward.”

Cr Mick Fell said: “I thank the Mayor for supporting the creation of the role of Chair.

“This concept has been a passion of mine and I am so pleased it is happening.

“I want to mention the wonderful role played by our CEO, Dr Rosemary Dillon, and Council’s entire Executive Leadership Team in bringing this to a point of fruition.

“Dr Dillon, and I will now work together on a report to Council that outlines the broader membership of this committee, as well as the terms of reference for this group, and what are the next steps in bringing the leadership centre to life.”
