The Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA WA) announced the appointment of Nick Allingame, Director of Pindan Developments to the position of President today.

UDIA is the peak organisation representing the urban development industry in Western Australia.

“I am very pleased to accept the position of President and I am excited about the prospect of leading an industry body that undertakes so much positive work in advocating for the property development industry’s role in creating smart, sustainable and liveable communities for the people of WA,” Mr Allingame said.

Mr Allingame has been involved in the property industry for over 20 years and has extensive experience in the development of a range of residential and mixed use developments comprising residential apartments, medium density complexes and broad acre land subdivisions.

“Further to my industry experience, I have been actively involved with UDIA for many years and held a position on Council for the last nine years,” Mr Allingame said.

“I think it is critical that the broader community understands the role that urban development plays in their day to day lives,” Mr Allingame said.

“The development industry is dedicated to designing and building the many urban and regional places that make WA a great place to live,” Mr Allingame said.

“In order to continue to successfully deliver quality projects that suit the needs of current and future generations, we need the support of the community and all levels of government,” Mr Allingame said.

“That is where I see UDIA playing a key role in developing relationships with key stakeholders and ensuring that industry and government can work together to deliver great places,” Mr Allingame said.

“My Presidency will continue the work of my predecessors in fostering those relationships and advocating for the industry in a positive way,” Mr Allingame said.

“UDIA is particularly keen to work with the state government in the planning of MetroNet and the associated MetroHubs,” Mr Allingame said.

“The potential to create active, vibrant, connected activity centres around the new and existing train stations is an exciting opportunity and we need to work together to make sure we get the right outcomes for local communities,” Mr Allingame said.

“I am also keen to progress the planning and taxation reforms that are needed to enable more efficient, cost effective delivery of housing in WA. Further streamlining of the development approvals processes and finalising a framework for the forward planning and coordination of state infrastructure will create certainty for the industry and assist in WA’s economic recovery,” said Nick.
