BUILDING ADVISORY SERVICES
The Building Advisory Services Branch of the Department of Lands and Planning (Northern Territory Government) make Building Notes ,Forms, Fact sheets, Policies, Legislation and Guidelines available from their website www.nt.gov.au/lands/building/index.shtml. There is access to a list of Building Practitioners in all categories as well as a connection to the Building Practitioners Board. If you haven't visited this site already we suggest you take the time.
Building Notes Register with access to past Building Notes can be found at www.nt.gov.au/lands/building/regulations/notes/index.shtml.
In future, notification of new Building Notes etc will be supplied via the NT Chapter Enews which will hopefully assist those who are not on the direct information list used by DPI.
