North Street Store – Building Act Compliance

Advice Date: 2 September 2021

At the August Council Meeting, Council resolved as follows:

That Council REQUESTS the CEO to publish on the Town’s website a summary of the material facts and the reasons for the Officer’s Recommendation in respect of the prosecution against Do a Dinner Pty Ltd, as resolved in item 13.1.1 at Council’s July Ordinary Council meeting.

The Town considers that the provisions of the Building Act 2011 may have been contravened in the following respects:

  1. Carrying out building works within the building without a valid building permit.

  2. Occupying the building without a valid Occupancy Permit.

Carrying out works without a building permit

Building work, unless otherwise exempt, is not permitted to be carried out without a building permit.

Section 9 of the Building Act 2011.

Occupying  a building without an Occupancy Permit

A class 6 building is not permitted to be occupied without a valid occupancy permit.

Section 43(2) of the Building Act 2011.

The Town has been in ongoing correspondence with the proprietors about these matters for some time.  Further, the proprietors were made aware of the relevant building requirements during the proceedings in the State Administrative Tribunal.

Building Act 2011 Obligations

As a permit authority under the Building Act 2011, the Town has a general duty and obligation to enforce the provisions of the Building Act 2011. Where building works have been carried out without requisite building permits, or a building is being used and occupied without a requisite occupancy permit, the use and occupation of that building may present a risk to staff and patrons. In the event the Town takes no action to address those issues, the use and occupation of that building also presents a risk to the Town.
