Have Your Say on the New Planning Code for Houses

February 23, 2020

Based on HIA’s work to date, we are extremely worried that the code will add cost and time for all new homes in SA. HIA is preparing a submission on behalf of all members and we will share that when it’s finished but in the meantime, I suggest that all members involved in new home design and building take a moment to look at the draft code and have your say before this Friday 28 February. 

Download the Design Code and supporting DPTI documents.

In particular, HIA is concerned that some Deemed-to-Satisfy provisions are too prescriptive and exceed requirements currently required in the Res-Code. 

If you have any concerns, have your say.

For any further information please contact Stephen Knight at HIA on 1300 650 620.
