The Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) is the development industry’s most broadly representative industry association with more than 2,500 member companies, spanning top tier global enterprises and consultants to local governments and small-scale developers.

Dedicated to the representation of Australia’s property development industry, we engage positively with Federal, State and Local Governments and their agencies on issues critical to the industry – covering tax, population, infrastructure, land use planning and beyond.

Our National office’s advocacy is defined by our state-representative National Board – and informed by a diverse membership base, extensive network of state councils and committees, and businesses on the front line of housing development around the country.

Key issues at a Federal level impacting grass roots members, are actively communicated to the states offices and coordinated with the National office through the State CEOs, committees, members’ feedback and the National Board. The net result is a resonant, powerful and respected voice both at the state and federal level that delivers sound, evidence-based analysis and solution to government.
