Safety comes first for Hills

Rouse Hill Times - - NEWS -

THE Hills Shire Coun­cil has said it was very con­cerned about the qual­ity of some pri­vate cer­ti­fiers af­ter an apart­ment com­plex in Cas­tle Hill was found to have se­ri­ous fire safety de­fi­cien­cies.

The coun­cil now wants the NSW Gov­ern­ment to re­view the Build­ing Pro­fes­sion­als Board and its code of con­duct for pri­vate cer­ti­fiers. “I want to see higher penal­ties for those who fail to in­spect a prop­erty and sign off on sub­stan­dard work,” The Hills Mayor Yvonne Keane said.
