The government’s inability to deal with the ‘shonky’ buildings problems in NSW continues unabated. They are proposing to ‘red flag’ developers of shonky buildings. This would mean that they could not sell high-rise apartments off-the-plan. Problem. They do not say how they will identify a shonky developer. Wait for a building to fall down?
The only buildings that will be inspected are ones by ‘risky builders’. Catch 22, here we go again.
Unfortunately, after pressure from Labour and the Greens, the government ‘pulled’ their proposed legislation. However, it is expected to be reintroduced next year. Hopefully no more defective buildings fall apart in the interim.
