Priorities

Policy & Advocacy / Priorities

OUR CURRENT TOP PRIORITIES


1. HOUSING AFFORDABILITY

Inefficient land release strategies, excessive development levies, taxes and charges, and excessive planning and building requirements drive up house prices by about 40 per cent.


2. PRODUCTIVE INFRASTRUCTURE

Ensuring there is a strong infrastructure pipeline: roads, hospitals, schools and other public buildings.


3. COST OF DOING BUSINESS

Industry needs a supportive environment to take risks to support future growth. This means less red and green tape, and less taxes.


4. TRAINING

A strong apprenticeship system that ensures a prosperous industry in the future.


5. PLANNING

A planning system that delivers more and faster development assessments


6. ECONOMIC MANAGEMENT

Paying down debt and responsible budget management are important priorities for state and federal governments. Reduced public expenditure, as opposed to increased taxation, is the long-term solution.
