Home Our Divisions Tasmania

Our advocacy agenda for Tasmania focuses on unlocking our state’s incredible potential. The past few years have seen promising investment in Hobart and across Tasmania, and we’re backing initiatives to encourage further development while protecting the quality of living options and affordability for Tasmanians.

Through our work, events and programs, we deliver value for all our Tasmanian members to uplift the industry and help make sure everyone benefits from the Hobart City Deal and increased investment in our state.

Unlocking Affordable Housing

This paper presents an assessment of alternative mechanisms that Government can consider in supporting the delivery of new affordable rental accommodation – particularly over the short to medium term – to take pressure off the broader housing market. The Paper also examines how the Tasmanian Government can work with the private investor market to accelerate the supply of affordable rental accommodation.

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:

  1. Addressing affordability
  2. Enabling more rental accommodation
  3. Planning for our future
  4. Promoting productivity and investment
  5. Skills training and workforce needs.

The role of the Tasmanian Division Council is to best represent the collective interests of Tasmanian members. Members are nominated by industry peers and elected for a two-year term, with the Tasmanian President also securing a position on the National Board. Division Councils are responsible for all local initiatives, and also leverage the Property Council’s campaigns to achieve state based results. The current Division Council representatives commenced their tenure in March 2023.


Committees meet every four to six weeks to discuss issues and projects relevant to their expertise and the focus of the Committee. Being selected as a member of a Property Council Committee gives you the opportunity to help shape the future and influence the organisation’s advocacy agenda. Members have the opportunity to contribute to important, focused industry discussions while building their professional networks and knowledge. 

As part of our 40-40-20 commitment to gender equity, all our Committees comprise a minimum of 40 per cent female representatives. Committee members are appointed for a two-year term, with the current Committees commencing their tenure in February 2023.

500 Women in Property

500 Women in Property helps our members promote female talent and empower them to advance in the workforce. The program aims to accelerate more women into leadership positions in the property industry through sponsorship of high-potential talent. Men and women can get involved as sponsors, and women as participants.

Champions of Change

The Champions of Change Coalition is a globally recognised strategy for advancing gender equality and building respectful, inclusive workplaces. We established the Champions of Change Property Group in 2015 to advance this cause in the sector, and today the group involves leaders who oversee more than 25,000 employees.

Girls in Property

Girls in Property is a program that informs high school students of the various career paths available across the property industry. It aims to generate a more diverse pipeline of talent by encouraging more women into the sector. Students gain insights into the industry and hear from leaders about what a career in property looks like.

We are deeply grateful to our Corporate Partners for their contributions. These partnerships enable us to deliver quality work and experiences for our members, which in turn benefits the entire Tasmanian property industry.
