20 February 2003
Kathleen Ryan, the Ministry for the Environment’s Auckland regional manager for the past 10 years, leaves her job on 28 February as her job is split into 3 senior operator roles — local government, sustainable industry and possibly urban issues. Ms Ryan has been the sole Government official on Auckland’s Regional Growth Forum, as a member of the steering group (all other members, alternates & steering group members are from local & regional government), and from the sideline has frequently provided perceptive comments on the forum’s direction. Her parting gift was to suggest a challenge for the forum will be to deal with development which has been going into transport corridors & business zones and “is not really the growth that you want.” Some of this medium-density residential development would prevent more efficient use of these areas. Ms Ryan intends to work in facilitation, mediation & training, and on urban & resource management issues.
