A push for extensions to the building grants

Last Friday Warren had a meeting with Mia Davies MLA and Ian Blayney MLA to push our case for an extension to the building grants.

We spoke about the impact of the building bonus program within the construction industry and the effects this program has had on businesses in the Midwest.

Although the program has built a pipeline of work for the industry, it is concerning that local businesses are having to knock back new builds because they cannot agree to enter into construction contracts before the December deadline.

Ian has written to the State Treasurer to express his concern and asked the Government to consider extending the time grant applicants are required to enter into a construction contract under the building bonus program.
