Council has resolved to discontinue providing Building Surveying Direct Services that includes the assessment and issue of Certificates of Likely Compliance and associated Building Inspections. Under the Building Act 2016, Certificates of Likely Compliance are certificates issued by a Building Surveyor certifying likely compliance with provisions contained within the National Construction Code.

Council will continue to provide Building Inspections, Occupancy Permits and Certificates of Final Inspection for those building works certified by Council prior to September 30 2004.

Anyone submitting documentation to Council (Permit Authority) for the issue of a Building Permit is to provide a Certificate of Likely Compliance issued by a private Building Surveyor.

If you are unsure about where to obtain the services of a private Building Surveyor please refer to the list of practising private Building Surveyors listed in the yellow pages of the telephone directory.

Buying in bulk brings down the cost per item. Products chosen for the buy will be based on quality, price and performance.
