Landowners are fair game: McArthur

THE land development industry is hampered by government policies that see landowners as an easy target says Urban Development Institute of Australia president Graham McArthur.

“The development industry is committed to providing safe and livable communities but could do without the government policies that see landowners as fair game,” Mr McArthur said.

Mr McArthur said he was pleased land developers continued to provide affordable land despite increasing government fees and charges.

“We’re looking for some political will to ensure Perth develops efficiently and effectively,” he said, following the release of the Urban Development Institute of Australia’s December 1999 Land Supply Survey.

Stable market prices and considerable growth in major areas were two key findings outlined in the survey.

There were 2,225 lots currently under construction to be released within the next six months, while 1,439 lots are expected to be released within the next six to twelve months – an increase of 24 per cent on the September quarter.
