The current terms of two members of the Board of Valuers will expire in early 2022.

Under section 182 of the Planning and Development Act 2005 (P&D Act), the Board is to be established and is to consist of the following members appointed by the Governor:

a chairperson nominated by the WAPC; and 

  • three other members nominated by the body known as The Real Estate Institute of Western Australia (REIWA).
  • Section 182(3) of the P&D Act requires that any person appointed to the Board to be an Associate or a Fellow of the Australia Property Institute 

API is looking to put forward four nominations for the opening on the Board of Valuers. 

 A brief outline of the Board’s functions and membership follows:

The Board of Valuers is established under the Planning and Development Act 2005 (P&D Act) to provide valuations of properties reserved for public purposes in planning schemes (both regional schemes and local schemes) where the owner of the land initially reserved wishes to sell the property on the open market at a reduced price and claim compensation for injurious affection from the responsible authority for the diminution in value.

 The WA State Committee is seeking expressions of interest for nominees to the Board. The Committee will then review and put forward four candidates to REIWA, note this is a nomination only and the appointment rests with the Governor. 

If you would like to be considered for nomination please email through your CV and a brief paragraph pertaining as to why you would be the best candidate for this Board position. 

Expressions of interest containing the above are to be emailed through to [email protected]no later than 27 October 2021. Any queries are to be directed to the WA API Office.
