New planning development and infrastructure legislation

April 07, 2019

The new Planning Development & Infrastructure legislation has an allowance for stop work/mandatory inspections by local authorities as an alternative to the current Reg 74 check sheet and sign offs.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure is currently developing inspection policies for those authorities which will be put in place during 2019.

The HIA has presented an option where the Licensed Building Works Supervisor, on behalf of the builder, has the qualifications and experience to oversee construction and sign a Statement of Compliance.
