In response to Mike Baird’s announcement to retire, the Property Council NSW has congratulated the outgoing NSW Premier on the strong legacy he will leave for the people of the state.
Property Council NSW Deputy Executive Director Cheryl Thomas has commended Premier Mike Baird for implementing a range of reforms that have placed the state in a good economic position.
“True to his word, Premier Baird has led a Government that focused on tackling some difficult and challenging reforms and delivering much needed investment in infrastructure,” Ms Thomas said.
“Under Premier Baird’s leadership we’ve seen asset recycling result in record breaking investment, establishing a transport system which will transform and support a growing Sydney and regions.
Ms. Thomas made comment on the Baird Government’s new strata law reforms, which came into effect on 30th November last year.
“We’ve also benefited from the Baird Government’s focus on reforming strata laws, enabling strata owners to renew ageing buildings more readily, and the Baird Government’s resolve to pursue local government reforms including council amalgamations.
“These reforms have, and will continue to, strengthen the NSW economy and improve our quality of life.
“Following his retirement from political life, we wish Premier Baird all the best in his future endeavours.”
