The Telecommunications (Fibre-ready Facilities—Exempt Real Estate Development Projects) Instrument 2021 provides for developers to be exempt from the statutory requirement to install pit and pipe if their developments are in rural or remote areas and meet criteria specified in the instrument. The Senate Standing Committee for the Scrutiny of Delegated Legislation has requested that the instrument be amended to sunset three years from commencement (i.e., 1 January 2024).
The Committee recommended that the Original Instrument sunset three years after commencement and consideration be given to including the exemptions contained in the Original Instrument in the Act. The Amendment Instrument implements the Committee's recommendation.
The attached draft Instrument and explanatory statement have been prepared in response to the Committee's request. The Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications is seeking submissions from interested parties.
