Advertisement A RECOVERY plan put forward by construction employers to save jobs, generate increased government revenues and kick start economic recovery has been backed by The Mid West Branch of the Construction Industry Federation.The CIF recently held an emergency meeting that brought together all of the major construction employers, including the major material suppliers, representatives of the architectural, engineering and surveying professions, major contractors and house builders.Conor O’Connell from the CIF Mid West Branch outlined the key issues contained in the recovery plan drawn up by the CIF. According to Conor O’Connell, “infrastructure spending is the key to saving jobs, increasing exchequer revenues and providing a platform for economic recovery for the Mid West region.” “In the Mid West, construction currently employs in the region of 15,000 people directly, which is down by almost 10,000 people in two years. This does not include the thousands of people who are employed indirectly. The sector in the Mid West also supports thousands of induced jobs in the shops, restaurants etc. where construction workers spend their wages.” “It was agreed as part of the recovery plan that urgent action is needed within the next month to protect these existing jobs. The prospect of thousands of job losses in construction throughout the Mid West and the entire country is real unless the pipeline of projects increases.”“One of the major fears for construction employers in the Mid West relates to infrastructure spending and the possibility of further cuts in labour intensive projects arising from the upcoming budgetary measures. It is the view of the Mid West Branch that this would be the entirely wrong thing to do from the economy’s perspective resulting in increased social welfare costs and undoing any savings from upcoming budgetary measures.”“As it is, 75% of infrastructure spending is already committed to ongoing or contracted projects and even a minor cut in spending would mean that virtually no new projects will start over the coming months. In addition, spending on the pre-tender design, engineering and surveying has been significantly cut meaning a reduction in ready to go projects over the coming 12 months.”Mr O’Connell said, “Now is the time for the Government to take advantage of the competitive tendering environment and to place an emphasis on labour intensity and projects that are vital for the local economy in the long term.”“The payback to the state will be immediate. Research shows that every €100m spent on construction projects creates 1,000 jobs and generates nearly €50m for the exchequer through income, taxes and social welfare savings. Infrastructure improvements also ensure the future tax income of the economy by improving competitiveness and attracting inward investment.” Linkedin WhatsApp Twitter Print Previous articleDell to cut 100 more jobs in LimerickNext articleMan seriously injured in shooting admin Email NewsLocal NewsCIF sets out plan to save jobsBy admin – March 21, 2009 687 Facebook

The home at 43 Dover Rd, Margate sold at auction.THE Margate market is showing signs of strong, steady growth and investors are taking note. According to CoreLogic, the median house price in the peninsula suburb has grown 7.6 per cent in the 12 months to December last year and 23 per cent in the past three years. Andrew Campbell, of Ray White Redcliffe, said the level of buyer inquiry in the area was fantastic at the moment. “Margate, and the Redcliffe Peninsula as a whole, is widely undervalued,” he said. “We’re seeing a lot of people coming from inner-city Brisbane or Sydney and Melbourne looking for value for money.” Mr Campbell said just last Saturday the auction of a three-bedroom property with two lots on a single title attracted the investors.More from newsLand grab sees 12 Sandstone Lakes homesites sell in a week21 Jun 2020Tropical haven walking distance from the surf9 Oct 2019“Anything with a double block is getting a lot of interest at the moment,” he said. The property at 43 Dover Rd, Margate sold for $565,000 under the hammer. Mr Campbell said he received eight offers for the property before the auction and there were four registered bidders on the day.Bidding started at $470,000. Mr Campbell said the successful buyer was a local real estate agent, who purchased the property as an investment. The Redcliffe-based agent said he was also seeing a good number of owner-occupiers looking to buy into Margate. “We’re getting a lot of younger families and people who are happy to commute — the train line has helped drive that interest,” he said.
