The Urban Taskforce's Property Person of the Year is  a major fund raising event for two charities- Warrah Homes & St Vincent's Prostate Cancer Research. The 2012 Property Person of the Year, Ross McDiven of Brookfield Multiplex went further than raising money and organised a Bathroom Blitz to restore many substandard bathrooms in Warrah’s accommodation buildings. Brookfield Multiplex organised free contributions from around 20 consultants and subcontractors who supplied free materials and fittings along with labour to transform the old bathrooms. Click here to view the flyer explaining what the Bathroom Blitz did and for a list of all those involved.

While we accept that the Council has a delicate balancing act to perform, we believe that the draft Blue Mountains Local Environmental Plan 2013 ("the draft plan") tries to do more than it's intended purpose. That is, the draft plan includes many zone objectives, clauses and standards that are unnecessary, inappropriate for inclusion in a statutory plan or simply wrong, discriminatory and anticompetitive.

While supporting the general direction of the changes to BASIX we are concerned about timing relative to the current concerns with housing affordability.  We are aware that the NSW Government is looking at a number of regulatory changes to prescribed payments, bonds for defects and even levies to subsidise lower cost housing and that all of these could lift NSW housing costs by around 10%.  The Urban Taskforce argues that more stringent BASIX requirements which will increase the cost of new housing should not be introduced at this point in time.
