Policy Positions


UDIA WA’s Western Australian Policy Priorities 2020: Developing great places to live, work and prosper details the focus of our advocacy efforts over the next 12 months.

The UDIA WA Council and Executive has concentrated on delivering a policy platform for the year ahead that clearly outlines practical and tangible recommendations for government across three focus areas:

  • Economy
  • Environment
  • Liveability

In establishing these focus areas we are clearly outlining the issues that matter most to our industry, with five key priorities underpinning each focus area providing a detailed set of actions that we can track progress on throughout the year.

The urban development industry is dedicated to developing great places to live, work and prosper, and our policy platform provides the framework to facilitate that. We are future focused, considering how industry, government and the community can work together to make a difference for generations to come.

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 economyprioritise 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.
