Realign property tax in the ACT to correct the unfair tax burden on the sector. With 55 percent of ACT Government taxation derived from property, the proportion is far greater than in any other state.
Encourage the urban renewal that is vital to the future of Canberra’s economic and social well-being. A strong strategic plan is essential for our city, one that anticipates future population growth, promotes sustainable development and is backed with investment in infrastructure.
Change government policy on residential land releases. When private sector investment is locked out of the market, it results in a lack of competition and a lack of housing choice.
