The Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate are making sure you all know that builders are going to have to put up big signs to let you know what they’re doing:
From today all ACT building sites that have work carried out or supervised by a licensed builder must display a sign about the work being done.
“The purpose of these new signs is to provide information about the building work including the licensed contractors doing the work,” said Director-General of the Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate, David Papps.
“The signs are not a new opportunity for the public to comment on the actual building works and are quite separate to any development application (DA) process that may have happened.
“The signs will allow the community to contact the people responsible for the building work and will allow emergency services personnel to identify the building site quickly and easily.”
