Shopping Centre Council of Australia
The Shopping Centre Council of Australia is the national industry group for major shopping centre owners, managers and developers in Australia.
The SCCA’s mission is to achieve a policy environment which increases investment certainty; to encourage industry best practice; and to promote the social and economic contribution of the sector.
The SCCA represents its members on all public policy and regulatory matters relevant to retail property nationally and in all states and territories. This includes issues such as retail tenancy regulation; competition policy; trading hours regulation; land valuation; taxation; planning, development and sustainability; security; infrastructure; and utilities.
The SCCA has 25 members, including all the major shopping centre owners and the two major independent shopping centre managers.
Our members own or co-own approximately 480 shopping centres in Australia and these centres contain around 13 million square metres of lettable floorspace. This represents around 63 per cent of the total lettable floorspace of Australian shopping centres. Our ‘reach’ throughout the industry is even more extensive, however, through the management agreements of our shopping centre manager members. Our members also provide a platform for thousands of small and medium businesses, including retail and non-retail tenants.
