Even though the House is in recess until the fall, your Board and other community stakeholders continue to work on the Speculation Tax situation - and encouraging our local representatives to "Scrap It!".
Do you have first-hand information on a development being altered / delayed or lost housing due to the Speculation Tax that you've not already sent us? Please connect, we are collecting stories to help the government understand the repercussions of this tax. Thank you.
Update on ongoing activities:
Your President, Kyle Kerr, President Elect Cheryl Woolley and EO Dave Corey are preparing to meet with Housing Minister Selina Robinson this week. Their discussion will focus on increasing housing supply in the Victoria area.
Please continue to share the Scrap the Speculation Tax website - the site makes it easy to write to your local representatives to encourage them to consider the broader economic impacts of the Spec Tax. More than 20,000 letters to government have been facilitated by the website.
