Most site inspections do not require you or your agent to be present, but if you would like to be there you can contact the compliance officer to arrange a time.
If we are doing spot checks, we may not be able to make an appointment with you.
The number of site inspections you'll need will depend on the size of the project and how well you are complying with your conditions.
Additional inspections may be required if:
- your consent is complex
- there are significant number of conditions imposed
- complaints have been received.
After each site inspection, you'll receive an email or a letter outlining:
- the conditions you are complying with
- the conditions that still may be outstanding
- any remedial work you need to do to rectify an issue.
If we are not satisfied you've fixed the problem or it's more severe, we may take enforcement action.
We prefer to encourage compliance through promotion, education, on-site directions and awareness raising.
When necessary, we also take formal enforcement action to address and discourage non-compliance and to direct remediation of the damage.
