About Construction and a Verbose Parliamentarian

Construction may restart

Small & medium size construction projects were invited to resume, between May 4th and May 17th, 2020, as part of GOA’s level one, out of four, economic restart phases.

For phase one, MinJust published specific Instructions.

You would find them interesting, so bear with me:

The required registration for the restart of construction/maintenance projects in phase one, starts May 4th, for residential and commercial jobs.

Work may start May 6th, with a maximum of 15 workers, obeying physical distancing rules and hygiene.

Developers must present the following docs in order to be approved: Business Chamber of Commerce registration; Description of project; Names of up to 15 workers; DIMAS CRV numbers of any workers with valid permits; Copy of the building permit; Persoonsnummer or tax ID. The company must be registered at AZV, SVB, DIMP, DAO.

Workers who have applied for their 1st work permits, will not be approved for phase one.

On the surface it all seems reasonable. If you are a legit business, then you have it all on file, the Chamber of Commerce registration, the description of project, the names of all your workers, and a copy of their Dimas work permits and CRV numbers for people you employ who are foreigners, and by nature of being a law abiding citizen, operating a respectable, legal company registered at the tax department AZV, SVB, DIMP, and DAO, you naturally also have a building permit.

SO WHY do all these contractors and sub-contractors have to apply for a GOA permit, and GOA badges, generating MORE BURAUCRACY.

I thought we wanted a smaller government and no waste, of time and resources post Covid19.

Can you just tell us your requirements and then random check compliance???

If we comply, fine.

If we don’t, then exercise your authority, to fine, to jail, whatever

Of course we see your point.

You want to make sure construction/maintenance projects are compliant, which is noble and right.

But running all jobs through your already inefficient and congested funnel is counterproductive.    

Didn’t we agree to do things differently from now on?

An old song, dedicated to MP Arthur DOWERS

You’ve got to know when to hold ’em
Know when to fold ’em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run

We don’t want to hear what you have to say, we have just ONE leader now, and you should all fall in line behind her!

Every gambler knows
That the secret to survivin’
Is knowin’ what to throw away
And knowin’ what to keep,

You had your turn in government for 8 years, and we’ll be mopping after you for the next twenty years.
