BUILDING YOUR FUTURE
In the interest of making NSW the best it can be, the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) NSW is urging decision makers to work together to better prepare the State for growth through a range of key initiatives.
Based on input from more than 250 NSW industry practitioners – from engineers, to urban designers, economists, architects and developers – this Building Your Future document details simple policy measures that will bolster the State economy.
Each year, the urban development industry contributes about $7.7 billion of taxes to the NSW Government. The industry is also the second largest employer in the State with more than 270,000 people working in building and construction alone. And every $1 million invested in property construction projects creates 15.5 full-time equivalent jobs, according to UDIA research.
Building Your Future has four goals:
- Grow the economy by making it easier to do business
- Deliver affordable housing for families and new homebuyers
- Create more jobs closer to where people live to reduce the journey to work
- Improve the NSW lifestyle by boosting infrastructure
