  • Inform State Government’s infrastructure plan

    The UDIA (Qld) is offering members the opportunity to provide feedback on the recently released Queensland Government directions paper – Delivering an Infrastructure Plan for Queensland.

    The paper confirms the State Government’s commitment to releasing a State Infrastructure Plan (SIP) in early 2016. The plan is set to include a pipeline of priority projects identified by the independent analysis of Building Queensland, a newly formed statutory infrastructure body.

    The State Government is now seeking feedback on its Directions Paper and the UDIA (Qld) is putting together a submission on behalf of our members. As always, we seek to reflect the views of our membership and we encourage you to contribute to our submission. Please contact Duncan Maclaine at or on 07 3233 2727 by 1 July 2015 to share your views.

    Still curious? To find out more about the Directions Paper and what it means for our industry, read on.
