After obtaining development consent, in most cases a construction certificate must be obtained from Council or a private Accredited Certifier before commencing any building work including any associated demolition or excavation works.
A construction certificate is basically a type of building approval which certifies that the proposed building (or subdivision) work will comply with the Building Code of Australia (BCA).
A construction certificate also certifies that any relevant conditions of development consent, and other regulatory requirements, have been satisfied.
A construction certificate (CC) can only be issued if:
Conditions cannot generally be imposed on a construction certificate. This means the plans, specifications and associated documentation must be fully detailed and show compliance with the development consent and relevant provisions of the BCA & Australian Standards.
After obtaining a construction certificate to carry out building works, the owner or other person responsible for the development must appoint Council or private sector Accredited Certifier as the PCA to carry out inspections of the works and to issue the required occupation certificate.
An occupation certificate certifies that the building or nominated part of the building is suitable and safe to be occupied, in accordance with the relevant requirements of the Building Code of Australia (BCA).
The PCA is usually the same person or organisation that issued the construction certificate.
The PCA will also advise of the necessary critical stages of the work to be inspected by the PCA or other Accredited Certifier. If these inspections are not carried out to the satisfaction of the PCA, the PCA may not be able to issue an occupation certificate.
Failure to obtain an occupation certificate is an offence which can result in substantial penalties, issue of notices and orders or legal proceedings.
The Shire of Temora offers all the benefits of country living with a comprehensive range of quality affordable services.
Temora is situated approximately 80 km north of Wagga Wagga in the South West (Riverina) of New South Wales. Canberra is two hours drive to the east, with Griffith a 1.5 hour drive to the west.
Temora has a huge advantage as it is centrally located between the cities of Sydney and Melbourne, as well as being situated within South West Slopes/Riverina area, making it an ideal base from which to visit the region.
Temora Shire includes the town of Temora, and villages of Ariah Park and Springdale, but outreaches to other small communities outside the Shire boundary. With a strong retail trade sector and an active business community, many visitors are surprised at the variety of shopping within the town.
