Have your say on the Queensland Building Plan

The Queensland Government has released the Queensland Building Plan—a discussion paper for industry and consumers. Consultation on the Plan will focus on the following 10 areas:

  • Security of payment
  • Queensland Home Warranty Scheme
  • Plumbing and Drainage Act reform
  • Queensland Housing Code / Reconfiguring a Lot Code
  • Building certification
  • Non-conforming building products
  • Inclusive communities
  • Liveable housing design
  • Licensing reforms
  • Sustainable building.

Why do we need a building plan?

Every day, tens of thousands of men and women across Queensland start and finish their day contributing to our state through their work in building and construction industry. They don't just build houses or apartments or office blocks, they build the communities in which we live and work. From planners, architects and builders, through to suppliers, subcontractors and certifiers, their work impacts on Queenslanders and our economy—now and into the future.

Queensland needs a plan that acknowledges those impacts and sets the long-term strategic direction for building and construction in the state—a plan that guides changes to policy and legislation so we can have a safer, fairer, and more sustainable industry that creates jobs opportunities and economic growth.

We need a plan that will foster a confident and successful building sector where businesses benefit from better processes, are paid on time and take pride in their high-quality work. And we need a plan that enhances consumer confidence in the industry, ensures the right person and materials for the job, and drives innovative, liveable and sustainable design.

It's time to take action!

We want you to tell us what is working, what isn't and what needs to be improved. If you are interested in any of the existing reform work underway, the topics still to be addressed or if you wish to raise other points of consideration, we need to hear from you.

There are many ways to have your say on the future direction of Queensland's building and construction industry. You can respond on behalf or an organisation or group, or as an individual.
