Introducing the Senior Planning Adviser – Regional Planning Framework, Angela Forrest
Angela spent her childhood and adolescent years between Melbourne and Hobart (best of both worlds). She attended the University of Tasmania and completed a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Geography and Environmental Studies. She then spent numerous years living in Melbourne and London, in working the banking and financial services sector, and (somehow) ended up residing on the Canary Island of Lanzarote!
Angela eventually returned to Australia and completed a masters in urban planning and environmental management at RMIT University.
In 2008 Angela returned to Tasmania and joined GHD as a planning consultant where she also undertook secondments with Sullivans Cove Waterfront Authority and Kingborough Council.
Angela joined the Tasmanian Planning Commission in 2016 as a planning adviser working across planning scheme amendment and local provisions schedules assessments, and major projects. Angela joined the SPO in early March 2022 as a Senior Planning Adviser.
In her spare time Angela loves camping and holidaying with her family, walking and running in nature, eating out with friends, and a girl’s weekend away!
