Changes to NSW licence renewal fees are predicted to save Albury tradespeople about $410,000 in total over 10 years.
Member for Albury Greg Aplin said about 220 tradespeople in Albury would benefit by not having to renew their licences every three years.
Mr Aplin said public consultation as part of the government’s business reforms showed support for retaining 13 home building licences.
“We’re keeping all 13 home building licences because we need skilled and qualified tradies, but we’re also reducing the financial burden on our small businesses,” he said.
