No you don't.
I have been checking the minimum requirements for Occupancy Permit in Victoria and came across these requirements in the NCC.
126.96.36.199 Required facilities
a) A Class 1 building must be provided with—
(i) a kitchen sink and facilities for the preparation and cooking of food; and
(ii) a bath or shower; and
(iii) clothes washing facilities, comprising at least one washtub and space in the same room for a washing machine; and
(iv) a closet pan and washbasin.
A kitchen sink or washbasin must not be counted as a laundry washtub. However, a laundry washtub is considered to provide the necessary means to dispose of waste water as required by P2.4.3.
Why does this requirement not apply in this particular case ?

I don't think that having a laundry sink is a prerequisite in houses unless you absolutely want to have one for yourself. I should think that for practicality's sake that I wouldn't do my washing in the kitchen unless I have no other options though. I can't imagine having all those clean clothes around oily and potentially dirty kitchen counter top surfaces. But that's just me.
What seems to be the officer's problem?

Its the waste water bit. How would the washer do this in the kitchen ?
Both waste pipes would connect to the sewer.
Kitchens are becoming more and more multi-functional.

I don't think it is necessary either. I have definitely seen plans for granny flats and apartments having WM in kitchen without the a laundry sink which some of those only have a single kitchen sink.

This is common in England, very rare in Australia, we're just not use to it, might work OK with a single or a couple, but would imagine it getting very difficult with bigger families.
