What happens during a hearing

Building Appeals Board hearings are informal. They are typically held on Thursday mornings and are normally open to the public.

Information about site inspections

Inspections of sites are carried out at the discretion of the Board.

Submission of further information (including discussion of the case) must not occur during the inspection, unless requested by the Board.

Notice of an upcoming inspection won't be given unless access is required to the property, in which case the Board will advise all parties during the hearing.
