Council must exercise discretion when deciding how to deal with unauthorised work and take into account the evidence, cost to the community, public policies, legal precedent and circumstances of each individual case.
While we are proactive in identifying unauthorised work, we also rely on help from the public. Please contact us if you suspect unauthorised work is taking place in your community.
Enforcement action may include:
It is a criminal offence to breach environmental laws and large fines and prison sentences may apply.
