New Chair of VCC appointed

April 28th saw the announcement that the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change has appointed Dr Anthony Boxshall as the new Chair of the Victorian Coastal Council.

Anthony, who is a current member of the Council, replaces Cathy Whelan who resigned from the role earlier this year to pursue an important external role.

Peter Beaumont, Executive Director Land Management Policy, DELWP noted that it was "great to have someone with Anthony's marine and coastal experience take on the role as the Government continues to progress its commitment to develop a new Marine and Coastal Act and establish improved management arrangements.”
