Our History

In 1999, the founding members of the Urban Taskforce saw that property developers and equity financiers had a unique perspective contrasting with the views of dedicated asset managers and many property consultants.

Since then the Taskforce has been working hard at promoting policies that boost property development. Our efforts have helped both the property development industry as well as the wider community who enjoy the benefits of new property assets. We have been bipartisan in our efforts, and the past former premiers from both sides of politics have served as our patrons. 


The Taskforces core membership is capped to 85 member organisations. It’s made up of Australias most prominent property developers and equity financiers. Our small, high quality, core membership is a deliberate decision. We want to remain focused on the issues raised by key players in Australian property development.


Service providers to the industry may become associate members and enjoy ˜preferred status. Our members include key builders, architects, urban planners, economists and lawyers involved in the planning and development industry.
