The Tasmanian property industry is currently being held back by a complex policy environment, high levels of regulation, and increasing costs, and risks that prevent it from reaching its full potential.
Economic growth and progress can only occur if these challenges are addressed with meaningful reform and a policy approach that facilitates investment and delivers outcomes Tasmanians can be proud of.
The Property Council is calling for the Tasmanian Government to focus on five key areas of reform that will ensure Tasmania unlocks its full potential:
- Addressing affordability
- Enabling more rental accommodation
- Planning for our future
- Promoting productivity and investment
- Skills training and workforce needs.
The Retirement Living Council has welcomed the passage of legislative amendments through Tasmania’s lower house of Parliament, noting they strike a consumer-operator balance.
