Planning Reform

Master Builders advocates further planning reform to improve local government performance, to sustain economic growth and at the same time to assist in reducing the cost of building and to facilitate greater choice in housing.

Master Builders is concerned that the current planning framework needs to be re-examined to ensure that it can meet the growing needs of business and the community.

It is imperative that responsive and effective strategic planning frameworks be developed that further streamline the planning approval process to increase economic efficiency, increase investment and opportunities for growth and to improve housing affordability and choice.
