Building Act brings building delays

More red tape from the Building Act 2004 is starting to catch up with builders, as I said back in May it already was. Today's story comes from Ashburton, with builders explaining that the
"grindingly slow consents process" is leading to huge delays. ... “What we are setting up is a culture that won’t go anywhere without a piece of paper.” And that hefty paperwork requirement, while aimed at improving quality, would ultimately serve to slow the system down...
As I've also said before, don't take consent figures into account when you're claiming that the economy is heading south.
