Property Council Tasmanian executive director Brian Wightman said the government should be using the current time of crisis to plan for recovery needed in the months and years to come not putting government business into hiatus for four months.
"The government granted itself a range of sweeping new powers this week and we need to ensure there is proper scrutiny of the decisions it takes in coming days," Mr Wightman said.
"Despite the best of intentions, no government gets it right all the time and that's why Parliament's checks and balances are vital.
"The need to continue legislative reforms that reduce regulatory handbrakes to that recovery could not be more urgent.

"Significant progress towards the implementation of a streamlined state-wide Tasmanian Planning Scheme and statutory decision-making frameworks must remain a priority, with the importance of simplified processes key to supporting recovery following this challenging period.
"There is also no more important time than now to bring forward infrastructure projects that will facilitate the state's recovery."
Mr Wightman also called for a meaningful reduction in rates, taxes and utility bills in addition to other support.
"The total value of the package announced on Thursday is equivalent to between two and three per cent of the total Tasmanian economy. To put that in context many European jurisdictions are implementing relief packages that are equivalent to 10 to 15 per cent of the value of their respective economies," he said.
"Parliament needs to be looking at these examples as a guide to how Tasmania can best build its capacity for recovery.
"Quitting for four months is an unacceptable response and will damage that recovery."
When questioned over the shutdown of Parliament and the enacting of extraordinary powers, Premier Peter Gutwein said he would only use these powers in accordance with the Emergency Management Act and the provisions associated with it.
"These powers will only be used to support the effort that we need during this crisis," Mr Gutwein said.
