Interruption for planning services

Published on 06 August 2020


Council wishes to advise that there will be a delay regarding building certification and inspection services in the coming weeks.

A Building Surveyor had been working for Council on a contract basis to cover staffing shortfalls, however the contract period has now ended and Council has so far been unable to secure the services of another contractor.

Border restrictions and closures relating to COVID-19 are significantly hindering Council's ability to hire contractors across a number of services.

Outstanding building inspection tasks previously lodged with Council will be prioritised when services resume.

Council apologises for any inconvenience.
