Minister awarded Fellowship

NICK RAYNSFORD, minister for housing, planning and construction has been made an honorary Fellow of the ICE, for his sustained commitment to the construction industry and its clients.

Raynsford was honoured by president Joe Dwyer during a select dinner at the ICE this week.

Raynsford and Dwyer were joined by Sir Michael Latham and other senior industry and institution figures to discuss ways of forging better links between industry and the Government.

Raynsford has devoted much of his career to construction issues. He took office as parliamentary under secretary for construction in 1997 and was subsequently promoted to minister in 1999.

His ministerial role has made him a key figure in developing policies that promote the importance of good design, and recognise the balance between the need for development and protecting the environment.
