Peter Melrosa

Ward: Banksia   Term: October 2027


I'm a committed resident of 4 decades and a ratepayer in the Banksia Ward. I was educated locally at Lathlain PS, Kent Street SHS and Curtin Uni and hold a Bachelor of Arts in Urban and Regional Planning and will attain a Master of Urban Design in February 2024.

Currently, I hold a town planning position at the largest local government in the metropolitan area, where I oversee key strategic projects. Previous to my town planning experience, I have worked in the transport infrastructure sector and in management.

Prior to my role as a Councillor, I initiated Vic Park Trees, advocating for the Town's Urban Forest Strategy and the 20% canopy goal. I've played a pivotal role in the Lathlain Park redevelopment, advocating for a 6:1 tree replacement ratio and serving as a member of the Community Reference Group (CRG) that delivered Koolbardi Park. For eight years, I've been the administrator of Carlisle Community Watch, fostering constructive dialogue on crime awareness to reduce crime in the area.

My overall approach is guided by the core values of improvement, success, integrity, altruism and contribution. Beyond my role as a councillor, I'm an enthusiastic gardener, often found tending to my garden and local verges!

With my education, experience and commitment to the community, I am dedicated to improving our town and working collaboratively with my fellow councillors to deliver results for you.
