  • have access to Council's approvals history so that we can provide quick advice and assistance to our customers
  • have direct access to Council's records and approval history, and Council's planning officers, so we can provide timely advice and assistance on the certification process,
  • are able to issue Construction Certificates, Complying Development Certificates, Occupation Certificates, Building Certification, and provide inspection services for all classes of buildings,
  • provide a building advisory role,
  • will ensure building regulations, construction standards, and development consent requirements are satisfied.
It should also be noted that as Tweed Council is the regulatory authority for plumbing and drainage and that the same officers are also responsible for carrying out all plumbing and drainage inspections associated with your development. This means that our experienced officers are available on site more frequently and therefore provide additional opportunities to ensure that both the building and plumbing trades are made aware of any issues as they arise during the construction process. This minimises delays and ensures that all legislative requirements are met to provide a smooth transition of your development though to the completion stage.

For further information we invite your enquiries to discuss any of these processes by phoning Councils Building and Environmental Health Unit on (02) 6670 2400.
