Property Council appoints Amy De Lore as Hunter and Central Coast Director

The Property Council of Australia has appointed Amy De Lore to the role of Hunter and Central Coast Regional Director. Ms De Lore joins from her most recent role as Government Relations Lead for Lake Macquarie City Council. She was previously Policy and Public Affairs Manager at Business
Hunter, and a former local journalist with broad experience in strategic communication and advocacy.

“I’m thrilled to be joining the Property Council at such an exciting and challenging time. Housing supply is high on the agenda for all levels of government, and projects like Hunter Park are gaining momentum, with the need to secure funding to make that vision a reality,” Ms De Lore said.

“I’m also keen to speak with local councils and industry across the Hunter and Central Coast about what is required to allow them to meet the newly released housing targets. Issues with the delivery of enabling infrastructure and services are restricting the release of land, so facilitating land availability is an important part of the housing solution,” she said.

Ms De Lore said continuation of the Newcastle Mines Grouting Fund was another key local issue.

“We’ve seen the welcome launch of a new Federally funded scheme in Lake Macquarie, but industry maintains the Newcastle fund needs to be reinstated, and potentially extended to other areas, to support new high-rise residential development.

“The Property Council has a strong reputation for constructive advocacy and there’s a huge opportunity to build on that. I look forward to meeting with members and with our committees to discuss priorities.”

Property Council NSW Executive Director Katie Stevenson welcomed Ms De Lore’s appointment.

“Amy has a solid reputation in the region and beyond, and I’m delighted that we have her on board to work with governments, members and other stakeholders to build great cities, strong economies and sustainable communities in the Hunter and Central Coast. Her leadership, networks and experience mean she’ll make a running start to inform and promote the important policy and advocacy work we do on behalf of our members.”

Ms De Lore will start in the role as Hunter and Central Coast Regional Director from 24 June 2024.
