Property Council Response to Retirement Villages Act Options Paper

 

The Property Council of Australia welcomes the opportunity to provide the retirement living sector’s official response to the Options Paper released as part of the review of the Retirement Villages Act 1986 (the RV Act).

The retirement living sector forms a crucial part of the housing, community and services mix for senior Victorians, and the importance of the sector will only continue to grow with population ageing patterns and increasing life expectancy. The review of the RV Act is timely and provides a terrific opportunity to ensure the legislative framework is geared for the future.  We congratulate the Victorian Government on the commitment to the review and the deep consultation with the industry and community.
