The government's latest plan to lift construction standards across NSW is a step in the right direction, but will fail to address a lack of transparency and enforcement in the sector, lawyers say.
Amid rising pressure to implement large-scale reform in the home building industry, the government this week introduced the first tranche of its construction sector reforms to Parliament.
Owners Corporation Network executive officer Karen Stiles said the changes were “step one of about 100” and agreed further reforms and market leaders were needed.
“Industry also needs to do its part in rebuilding confidence. Failure to effect a cultural shift will result in an economic armageddon,” she said.
