Matthew Kandelaars, the CEO of the Urban Development Institute of Australia’s Victorian branch, has called for an urgent review of the state government’s proposed ‘windfall gains tax’ on property developers. Modelling undertaken on behalf of UDIA Victoria suggests that the rezoning tax will reduce state ­economic output by $7bn and result in the loss of 20,000 direct jobs, while at least 6,700 dwellings will not be built if the Budget measure goes ahead. UDIA Victoria has proposed an alternative model for the rezoning tax.
