The Property Council of Australia

LR-RUTH PALMERThe leading advocate for Australia’s biggest industry – property.

The Property Council champions the interests of more than 2200 member companies that represent the full spectrum of the industry, including those who invest, own, manage and develop in all sectors of property, creating landmark projects and environments where people live, work, shop and play.
Led by a powerful board and strong executive leadership team, the Property Council’s vision is a thriving industry creating prosperity, jobs and strong communities.
In 2015 our two key national advocacy priorities have been for fairer taxes and better planning with an overall objective to improve housing affordability in Australia.
The Property Council has around 95 staff located across ten offices around the country to service the needs of our members.
Here in the Territory we have been vocal in the planning and implementation of the Darwin City Centre Master Plan into the Planning Scheme, we now will be seeking commitments from both sides of Government and Council to ensure the 78 projects in the plan are budgeted for and planned accordingly.
We have been strongly advocating the need for strategic resources and planning of our existing activity centres in the Top End before constructing new centres. We firmly believe that it is imperative to focus on existing centres and ensure the cogs are turning effectively to boost the economy in the local area.
The property industry has a larger footprint on the NT economy than any other industry, the Property Council is committed to championing a strong property industry that creates prosperity, jobs and strong communities.
