In December a discussion paper for consultation on the NRSCH review was released. It called for submissions on the operation of the scheme and how it could be improved, and CHIA Vic needs your input. While Victoria is not part of the NRSCH we certainly have an interest in it as we might become part of the NRS in the future. In order to assist members to understand the NRSCH and how it is different from the Victorian Regulatory System CHIA Vic is convening a forum.
The program will include:
- Wendy Hayhurst – the new CEO of CHIA National – she will describe the operation of the NRS, how it is different to the Victorian scheme and highlight areas where she thinks reform is required from her experience in NSW
- David Schreuder – Director Housing Registrar (invited) – he will briefly outline how the VRS operates now and the work that has been done to harmonise it with the NRS
- Hayley Parkes – General Counsel Housing Choices – Hayley will talk from the perspective of a multi jurisdictional CHO and give her take on the experience of both systems.
