With major new developments underway and on the horizon, the development industry in Ipswich is poised to be a driver of economic growth for the west.

Around seven per cent of the region’s workforce are directly employed by the development industry. We know that when our industry is doing well, our community is doing well. There are benefits to the whole region when the community has the confidence to make housing and investment decisions about where they live, work and play.

Our focus on building relationships with the Ipswich City Council means we enjoy open dialogue on industry related topics including infrastructure charging reductions and development incentives. We are proud to represent our members and work with council to provide the opportunities for long-term sustained economic growth.
