- As a minimum, Council will undertake formal inspections/tests as referenced within this section of the IDC.
- In some cases, additional inspections/tests may be required. These additional inspections/tests will be outlined in the Development Works Approval or requested when unforeseen circumstances arise or to resolve a difference of opinion. These additional inspections/tests will be advised by Council where required.
- Council will not attend any formal inspections/tests where the work to be inspected/tested has not been pre-inspected/tested and confirmation provided to Council that the inspection/test is ready for formal inspection/test. Where work to be inspected/tested is not ready for inspection/testing or the equipment required for the inspection/testing is not on site then Council staff will leave the site and only return when the work is ready for inspection/testing.
- Where Council arrives for a formal inspection/test and that inspection/test is deemed "not ready" to be undertaken, Council reserves the right to cancel the inspection/test and require it to be re-scheduled.
- Council will charge associated costs to the Consent Holder for any inspection/test attended that is deemed not ready and for any re-testing/re-inspection where inspections/tests have previously been failed.
- The requirements for application for re-inspection/re-tests are the same as for the requirements for the initial inspection/test.
Where the Consent Holder's Representative fails to comply with these provisions, Council may not:
- Accept the assets for vesting.
- Allow the new infrastructure to be connected to the existing network.
- Issue the s224 for the subdivision.
- Issue building consents or code compliance certificates for any buildings proposing to connect to the infrastructure.
