The Peak Industry Body for Strata & Community Title Management
The NSW State Election held at the weekend has delivered many surprises, a new Labor government promising ‘a fresh start’ and plenty of policies that affect strata and the property industries.
A summary relevant to the strata sector and specific to SCA (NSW)’s work is listed below to avoid providing repetitive information you would have read elsewhere.
SCA (NSW) consulted and engaged with all major political parties regarding our three key policy priorities about our continued cooperation with the NSW Government on crucial building projects, supporting smarter and stronger legislative reforms in the property sector, and future-proofing emerging issues.
The official responses to SCA (NSW)’s election priorities from the NSW Liberal Party and The Greens were encouraging for their ability to grow the size and strength of the strata industry and communities across NSW.
SCA (NSW) has been engaging with the Labor Party in the lead up to the election and will continue to work closely with the incoming Labor majority government to ensure that strata are fairly and accurately represented as the new government consults stakeholders on its policy commitments.
