The Issue

We are seeking your views on revision of the Telecommunications in New Developments policy.

We are seeking comments on the Telecommunications in New Developments policy, which came into effect in March 2015.

Since the introduction of this policy, a lot has changed in the way telecommunications infrastructure is delivered in new developments. The National Broadband Network (NBN) rollout will also be completed in 2020.

In light of these changes, we are reviewing the TIND policy so it continues to provide people moving into new developments with access to timely telecommunications infrastructure.

We have released a short paper covering issues we would like your feedback on. You are also welcome to comment on any aspect of the current policy.

We are aiming to complete the review of the policy and make any necessary changes before 1 July 2020.
