Owners of buildings within the Fortitude Valley designated area have a duty to maintain the appearance of their building to a standard which does not detract from the appearances of other buildings in the area.
A building is likely to detract from the appearances of other buildings in the designated area if it is:
- in a dirty condition
- in a state of disrepair
- in need of repainting
- in a dilapidated condition
Council will investigate the circumstances of any complaint and if appropriate engage with the owner to work towards a resolution. This may include compliance action.
If you choose to request an internal review into Council's compliance action, you can download the Internal Review application form (PDF - 184kb).
