Transparency and accountability in building approvals key

Master Builders Association of NSW < 1 mins read
Master Builders Association of NSW (MBA) applauds the NSW Government’s initiative to provide a more transparent and accountable building approvals process, following the release of a new reporting dashboard and statement of expectations.
 
The MBA Executive Director Brian Seidler said the industry strongly supports measures that enable a clear and easily accessible platform that reports on average building approval and lodgement times.
 
“In the past, consumers and builders have not been able to access information about the potential delays to their development applications. This changes everything.
 
“Now, the industry will be able to access information which will allow for better coordination of projects.
 
“This is something that should be replicated right across the country.
 
“The NSW Government is leading the way by putting in additional incentives and measures to assist councils in bringing down approval times.
 
“The dashboard confirms that some council areas need to invest more resources in addressing approval backlogs so builders can get on with the job of delivering new homes,” Mr Seidler said.

Master Builders statement on CFMEU investigation

The joint media investigation into the operations and underworld links within the CFMEU confirms what Master Builders has long known and called out – union representatives with a comprehensive disregard for the law and the industry it claims to represent. Governments cannot turn a blind eye to this abhorrent and alleged criminal behaviour that we have seen displayed over the past few days.

Our recommendations for urgent action are as follows: Establishment of a cross-jurisdiction police strike force to…
