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.
While we are taking all necessary precautions, 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.
Government stimulus measures
UDIA WA has produced a brief overview of state and federal government stimulus measures as a quick reference guide. Download it here: Stimulus overview flyer June2020.
Ready to Rebuild
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic UDIA WA has 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.
UDIA WA OFFICE
UDIA WA is maintaining a ‘business as usual’ approach to member services with the exception of our events program at this stage.
Following the recent cautious relaxation of some restrictions, UDIA WA has taken the decision to reopen its 3 Wexford Street office in Subiaco for staff from Monday 11 May, 2020. Our staff will be maintaining the required 1.5m social distancing requirements and we have limited the number of people permitted in the boardroom at any one time.
As always our staff are available to you via phone or email and will be happy to assist you where possible.
We thank you for your understanding during what is a challenging time. We look forward to continuing to provide maximum value to our members.
