Building better apartments program update

April 09, 2019

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) is in the process of reviewing and expanding the Building Better Apartments program. DELWP have identified three phases to be completed within the current work program, with the final phase anticipated to be finalised in 2021.

The current stage of the program broadly relates to expanding and reviewing the existing standards of green spaces, external materials, street interface and managing construction noise. DELWP have been consulting industry and Local Government to assist in determining specific policy proposals for the above listed areas. HIA have met with DELWP on a number of occasions over the past few months, to assist in providing feedback for the current phase of the program.

Specific policy proposals are currently being tested with reference groups for feedback, with the finalised proposals of this stage of the program set to be released for public consultation later this year.
