Major industry bodies urge support for strata reforms

Seven of the leading industry bodies representing the property development and property management industries in Western Australia have joined forces to call on the opposition to support strata reform.

The industry bodies banded together to stress the importance of the reforms to achieve greater housing outcomes such as affordability, diversity and sustainability in a joint submission.

“These reforms were initiated by the former Liberal government and have involved extensive consultation across a range of stakeholders and the community by lead agency Landgate,” said Emma Thunder, Deputy Executive Director of the Property Council.

Industry groups include: Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA WA), Strata Community Association (SCA WA), Property Council WA, Real Estate Institute of WA (REIWA), Australian Property Institute (API), Planning Institute of Australia (PIA) and Facilities Management Association of Australia (FMA).
