The Planning and Development Committee reviews existing planning legislation including international best practice in this area.

The Construction and Technical Issues Committee identifies different factors which impact on the physical delivery of property and makes policy proposals for removing any blockages to property delivery as well as identifying new innovations in construction.

The Funding Initiatives Committee exists to review, monitor and advise members and inform stakeholders on facilitating financing arrangements and financial barriers to property delivery.
