Building General

Building Rules Assessment involves the technical assessment of a proposal for compliance with the Building Code of Australia and relevant Australian Standards applicable to the classification of the proposed building.

In general the Building Code covers:

  • Structural adequacy

Applicants have the option of using a Private Certifier or Council  to assess an application for building rules compliance.
