Speeding up approvals for UFB connections

On 23 February 2016 Minister Adams announced the first phase of Land Access Reforms, aimed at speeding up UFB  connections.  Coordinators will be well aware of the challenges in securing landowner approvals for UFB connections to premises along shared driveways or in multi-tenanted buildings.  These reforms aim to speed up this process in situations where landlords or other affected parties can’t be contacted or are slow in responding to requests for approvals.  MBIE has prepared a very good visual explanation of the new reforms. Well worthwhile taking a look.  Even though it is not our responsibility to secure these permissions, if you know how things are supposed to work, you can be much stronger advocates for the families we support.
