In January 2020 TLD prepared a submission to Treasury in regards to ideas to incentivise residential dwelling construction and therefore work in the construction sector which is a major employment generator.

The ideas floated were different to what has been done in the past and were linked to the principles of Directions 2031 which encourages infill development in the Perth metropolitan area rather than expanding Perth’s already extensive footprint. In summary creating locational based incentives that align with the Governments planning framework including public transport and in particular rail (very different to the recent State & Federal grants).

It was pleasing that Hon Ben Wyatt responded to our correspondence (click this link). We are hopeful that our ideas with the passage of time will be considered as part of the upcoming State election campaign for providing continued stimulus to the sector.
