Building action snapshot


Every Canberran expects to live in a safe and sustainable home and investors expect to have certainty around the quality and longevity of their investment in ACT buildings.

That is why the ACT Government is taking strong action to improve building quality to get the best outcomes for Canberrans.

The Government recognises that as our city grows, we need to ensure building work that is occurring around the city complies with both ACT and national building standards.

A total of 28 of the 43 agreed building regulatory reforms will be delivered by end of June this year.

This includes new documentation guidelines for building approval applications, and codes of practice for builders and building certifiers.

The depth and breadth of these reforms is substantial and the Government will continue to develop these reforms to ensure the ACT has the highest quality buildings.

The Building Action Snapshot provides a quarterly breakdown of regulatory and enforcement measures.
