About UDIA NSW
Established in 1962, UDIA NSW has grown to become the leading industry body representing the interests of the NSW property development sector. UDIA NSW aims to secure the viability and sustainability of the urban development industry for the benefit of our members and the communities they create. We represent the leading participants in the industry and have more than 500 members across the entire spectrum of the industry including developers, financiers, builders, suppliers, architects, contractors, engineers, consultants, academics and state and local government bodies. A quarter of these members are based in regional NSW.
Almost 50 years of commitment to the property development industry has provided us with the experience to build solid policy platforms that we advocate to key decision makers and leading opinion shapers.
UDIA NSW is driven by its members. Our president, council, chapters, committees, and staff ensure that we give members maximum value for their investment. Membership provides a unique opportunity to expand business networks, develop essential links to key industry stakeholders and decision makers, stay abreast of current industry issues, and truly influence the future direction of NSW’s urban development industry.
UDIA NSW members are represented by an elected Council of 13 leading industry practitioners who are responsible for the strategic direction of the Institute. UDIA NSW also has an extensive committee and regional chapter structure that involves more than 300 of the development industry’s key stakeholders in policy formulation.
