Home Living : March 17th 2009
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, March 17, 2009 3 Out of the maze HOMELIVING The new NSW housing code will provide a major boost to jobs in the building and construction industry, according to the Australian Institute of Architects' building advisory service, Archicentre. Archicentre state manager Angus Kell says the legislation provides an alternative to the existing development approval and construction certificate process. A complying development certificate is now issued for residential developments which meet the requirements of the new code. ''This should speed up the building of new homes and renovation projects, which could create thousands of jobs,'' he says. A survey of 800 architects across Australia asked what had been the most dramatic change in the last five years. Over one-third, 34.7 per cent, of the replies nominated town planning and development approval problems. Mr Kell says the major problem was the complicated maze of planning rules at state and local government levels which conflicted, leaving the renovator as the meat in the sandwich. ''The time for councils to process a DA in Sydney averages 120 days,'' he says. ''If you meet the requirements of the NSW housing code you may get a complying development certificate within 10 days, with construction able to commence two to four days later. ''Delays can add thousands if not tens of thousands to costs.''
