The idea from DC about setting up a Growth Implementation Committee is really good, but are they going to look at other areas of growth other than Infrastructure and housing. I hope they do as the other business areas need to be supported just as much.
A really good test for how determined the committee members are will come when they face the big problem and that is not red tape but financing the building projects. I wish i could remember where I read something about the housing shortage, but it said the people running the projects had the permissions but they could not find the money as the banks were not lending.
The is the real problem that does need fixing first.
In regards the businesses, I have already blogged on a way of helping them get the money they need to operate, but it does need someone to think about the plan, but it would work I think
