In WA the Property Council is advocating for policy that drives jobs, brings prosperity and creates thriving communities.
We are calling for a planning and urban governance system that supports exemplar place-making; infrastructure prioritisation and investment to facilitate development at the right time and in the right places;
and reform of the tax system to stimulate investment in Perth and WA.
Reduce the top marginal rate of land tax, fewer land tax thresholds and a plan to phase out stamp duty.
Retain Development Assessment Panels and make all local planning schemes consistent to enable DAPs to approve scheme amendments.
Create an independent infrastructure provisioning agency that is aligned to WA's strategic planning objectives.
Introduce community titles, leasehold strata titles and a practical framework for the redevelopment of old strata schemes.
Bring a pipeline of government land and property asset for sale and adopt a WA infrastructure strategy.
