Building Industry Welcomes Productivity Commission Study into Local Government

Master Builders Australia, the peak body for the building and construction industry welcomed the announcement by the Treasurer for the Productivity Commission to undertake a study to examine local government’s own revenue sources. Mr Wilhelm Harnisch, Chief Executive Officer, said “A clearer picture of local government’s financial capacity and spending patterns will be important for both home buyers and builders alike.” Mr Harnisch said, “The building industry has for a long time complained that local governments appear to have lost sight of the cost burden they are imposing through inefficiencies.” “The Study will put the spotlight on local government on how it discharges its responsibility in relation to revenue raising and the delivery of community services and infrastructure.” “Master Builders Australia has for some time been calling for action to examine the fiscal practices of local government and its impact on housing affordability.” “This Productivity Commission study will help establish the facts relating to local government finances and the fiscal arrangements between the three tiers of government,” he said.
