Queensland Building Plan


The Queensland Government is calling on people to have their say on the Queensland Building Plan, which looks at a number of potential reforms designed to bring increased confidence and growth to the State’s $44 billion building and construction sector.

The 10 key areas of discussion include a review of licencing and plumbing and drainage laws, the potential for a single state housing code, the operation of the Home Warranty Scheme, and security of payment for subcontractors.

There are 10 key areas that are currently being reviewed. Not all area’s are relevant to the Painting & Decorating industry. Master Painters Queensland has identified what the Painting & Decorating industry needs to focus on:

  1. Queensland Home Warranty Scheme
  2. Security of Payment
  3. Licensing Reforms
  4. Non-Conforming Products

This is your chance to share your ideas about what is working, what isn’t working and what needs to be improved for the future of our building and construction industry.

To have your say:

  • complete an online survey available via www.hpw.qld.gov.au
  • attend one of the public consultation sessions being run across the State from 1 February 2017. For details or to register visit www.hpw.qld.gov.au.
  • lodge a written submission via www.hpw.qld.gov.au, email qldbuildingplan@hpw.qld.gov.au or post to Queensland Building Plan, Department of Housing and Public Works, GPO Box 2457, City East Brisbane, Qld, 4001 by 28 February 2017.

We will be updating all our members on the dates and venue for each consultation location, to help give all our members the opportunity to have their say by attending these sessions.
