The planning directorate for the ACT recently said the planned overhaul of the ACT construction industry intended to be completed by the end of the last financial year will not be completed until 2020.
In 2016, the planning minister Mick Gentleman announced a number of building reforms including measures to target “phoenixing” -the dishonest practice of liquidating assets and restarting under a new identity to avoid creditors.
The dodgy practice prompted the reforms which would introduce new minimum standards, compliance measures and licencing requirements for builders and certifiers.
Although 43 reforms were announced last year, the ACT chief planner Ben Ponton said only about half were completed, 12 months after the initial deadline.
