The Building Code of Australia (BCA) is a national document which sets minimum standards for the construction of buildings and structures. Its role is to protect current and future building owners.
Many Australian Standards are also called up by the BCA which also specify minimum standards of design and incorporation of components or practices into buildings.
Council is responsible for ensuring that development occurs in accordance with the minimum standards set by the BCA to ensure that buildings and structures are safe and structurally sound.
Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) legislation also affects the way a commercial building must be designed and constructed.
The potential presence of Asbestos should be considered during Building work. If asbestos products are in good condition and are well maintained, they do not pose a health risk. However, if you are thinking of renovating or demolishing your house, you should make yourself aware of all asbestos products in your house and ensure these products are removed responsibly.
The State Government web site also provides several useful publications which can be referenced for information
