The Brisbane City Council is set to support the building and development industry in a bid to economically bounce back from the corona virus pandemic.

Councilor Krista Adamas, in the recent council budget debate, advised it was expected that the industry will start to suffer in the fourth quarter of this year, “it’s from September onwards that they’ll begin to hurt. Projects will begin to wrap up and cashflow for new projects will have dried up.”.

To aid the expected decline of projects under construction, the Brisbane City Council will provide the following:

  • A hotline for builders to seek advice on planning approvals.
  • A change application priority service.
  • A dedicated team to prioritise domestic-scale development applications.

The key change for developers being the priority service of change applications. “It will assist projects that are reaching key milestones, or when projects need to respond to changed circumstances, so we can help builders avoid delays in finishing a project,” Cr Adams said.

SSKB’s development consultancy team can provide guidance on your project no matter the stage. Design, development approval, change application…even if you have just acquired a site and want to discuss strata titling, we are able to provide expert advice.
