Scott Ludlum

Australian Greens Senator Scott Ludlam was first elected to Federal Parliament in November 2007. Scott has spent much of his time as a Senator championing the planning and development of sustainable, connected, healthy and liveable cities.

In 2014, his work won the Planning Institute of Australia’s (PIA) National Planning Champion award, which recognises innovation and excellence in Australia’s urban landscape.

Most recently he launched the Greens’ Urban Forest Plan for Perth. Developed in close consultation with Aboriginal elder Dr. Noel Nannup, this plan knits together the biodiversity and cultural fabric of Perth city. The strategy also proposes dedicated funding to provide the missing link in our infrastructure and planning systems - a network of protected bushland, greenways, parklands and green streetscapes that everyone can access and enjoy.
