Deague de­par­ture likely well-planned

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

THE CITY of Bel­mont was dealt a blow with the an­nounce­ment that its Di­rec­tor of Com­mu­nity and Statu­tory Ser­vices Neville Deague will be re­tir­ing in Au­gust 2017 af­ter tak­ing long ser­vice leave.

His ca­reer in lo­cal govern­ment spanned 44 years, with 29 at the City of Bel­mont.

Pre­vi­ously he worked in plan­ning in lo­cal govern­ment and in Pa­pua New Guinea.

Bel­mont chief ex­ec­u­tive Stu­art Cole said Mr Deague had been the ar­chi­tect of sig­nif­i­cant progress in the City and worked tire­lessly to en­sure it reached its full po­ten­tial in a care­fully planned man­ner.

“Mr Deague will not only be a sig­nif­i­cant loss to Bel­mont but also the broader plan­ning pro­fes­sion,” he said.
