Queensland Building Plan – Have Your Say
This week the government are kicking off face-to-face consultations for the new Queensland Building Plan – the most comprehensive review of the rules governing building and construction in generations.
The Queensland Building Plan looks at 10 areas of reform including security of payment for subcontractors, licensing, plumbing and drainage laws, the potential for a single state housing code, and the operation of the Home Warranty Scheme.
To make sure the Government get the plan right we need you to have your say.
You can come straight from your office or work site and stay for the afternoon or evening, or just drop in for the session or sessions that interest you.

If you are a home owner, builder, subcontractor, tradesperson, licensee, or represent an industry group or local government, we want to hear from you about what’s working, what isn’t and what needs to be improved.
If you can’t attend one of the sessions above, you can have your say by completing an online survey until 31 March 2017.
You can also make a formal written submission through the Queensland Building Plan website. Submissions close on 28 February 2017.
The Queensland Building Plan is for everyone, including the more than 200,000 Queenslanders who earn a living in the industry. It’s for every family that buys a house and wants to know that their investment is secure. It’s for builders who deserve to be able to compete on a level playing field. And it’s for subcontractors who deserve to be paid in full, on time, every time.
Please take this opportunity to ensure a strong future for our building and construction industry and all who work in it.
