COVID-19 Industry Updates
In prioritising the health and wellbeing of our staff, members and stakeholders, UDIA WA has implemented a range of measures in response to COVID-19 and official government advice.
Following the implementation of a lockdown in the Perth, Peel and South West regions from 6pm on Sunday 31 January until 6pm on Friday 5 February, UDIA WA has taken the decision to temporarily close our 3 Wexford Street office to members and staff for the duration of the lockdown.
Despite the closure, all the UDIA WA team will be working remotely and are available via phone or email to answer any questions you may have. UDIA WA will continue to provide a range of opportunities to learn, advocate and engage with industry as we move through these unprecedented times, providing a platform to support the development industry throughout the pandemic period and beyond.
Given the rapidly changing nature of government advice and requirements, we have put together the below resources detailing the up to date advice and stimulus measures created by the State and Federal Government and will continue to update this page as and when new information becomes available.

Ready to Rebuild
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic UDIA WA produced ‘Ready to Rebuild’ which sets out a clear set of priorities for government to support jobs and a stronger economy post COVID-19 and outlines our recommendations to State Government on how to assist our industry and the broader economic recovery following the impacts of COVID-19.
Our ‘Ready to Rebuild’ actions clearly map out priorities for the State Government to consider to keep the development industry operating and to transition successfully into a strong recovery.
We specifically look at how to stimulate the economy, prioritise infrastructure investment and cut red tape.
The actions that we recommend are rational, well considered opportunities to minimise the impact of COVID-19 on our industry and the broader economy.
