Review of the Building Levy
Property Council is currently looking into the building levy and what it funds. The building levy is paid by building owners or developers on successful building consent applications for projects that are worth more than the prescribed threshold. Given that our members contribute to this, we believe that MBIE should be making better use of the funds to directly benefit the industry.
