The Liberals and Nationals Party are calling on the Andrews Labor Government to acknowledge its part in the current building crisis and work with our regional building sectors to help get them back on track.
Nationals Member for Ovens Valley Tim McCurdy said, “All you have to do is drive around any regional town across the Ovens Valley electorate to see how much the building sector really is struggling.
“Whether it was the endless lockdowns, outbreak of Covid-19, staff and labour shortages, or shortage of materials and supplies – it’s fair to say that the building sector is one industry that definitely has not recovered.”
He continued, “For many of our regional residents and builders, this is absolutely devastating and unfair.
“For months on end, house after house is being left unfinished, the frames go up, the windows arrive, yet at some point along the building process there’s a roadblock.”
The Liberals and Nationals will continue to push for the Victorian Government to step up and give our regional families and businesses some hope when it comes to not only their livelihoods but building their forever homes.
