Water and sewerage infrastructure a key driver of economic prosperity

The Property Council of Australia today reiterated the importance of improved water and sewerage provision in Tasmania.

"The delivery of improved water and sewerage provision in Tasmania is crucial for continuous economic success.

“Unfortunately, the challenges that we face as a state are due to the large number of treatment plants that require urgent attention, a legacy of far too many councils.

"The Property Council has long maintained that a significant investment in water and sewerage infrastructure will  be both job creating and job enabling into the future," Executive Director Brian Wightman said.

"The Property Council looks forward to working with TasWater and all levels of government to ensure that any red tape issues which stifle investment and development are quickly sorted," he said.
