Consultation opens on Georges River construction site policy

Georges River Council has been advocating for change to legislation concerning construction sites to ensure an accountable and responsive process that better serves the community, with a draft Principal Certifier Complaints Policy 2024 now on public exhibition.

The Council says its Certification Campaign began in August 2022, when it resolved to commence a campaign to lobby the NSW Government for amendments to relevant legislation.

On 22 April, the draft Principal Certifier Complaints Policy 2024 was endorsed for public exhibition.

“The draft policy is the result of this journey,” said Mayor, Sam Elmir.

“This work is important to Council, and I know it is an issue that has been top-of-mind for our community as well. Participation and feedback are crucial to ensure that the work addresses community issues.”

The policy aims to clarify the roles of various parties involved in managing complaints regarding development sites, including the Principal Certifier, owner, Council, and Building Commission NSW.

The draft policy serves as a foundation to Georges River Council’s Certification Campaign.

The Draft Principal Certifier Complaints Policy 2024 will be on public exhibition until 23 June 2024. Submissions can be made online through Council’s Your Say webpage, or a hard copy can be returned to Council’s Customer Service Centre or Libraries.
