Apply to conduct out of hours work

During construction, you can request to work outside of the standard construction hours for public safety or for traffic flow reasons.

Applicants must demonstrate the associated construction works have the appropriate development consent. 

Apply for an Out of Hours Work Permit

Approximate turnaround time is five working days from receipt at Council for a standard application, or 72 hours when an urgency fee is paid.

Written consent for out of hours work must be collected from our Customer Service Centre.

If regular out of hours work is needed, then an application to Modify a Development Consent must be submitted via the NSW Planning Portal.

Out of hours work will not be granted to facilitate early completion of works.

Standard construction hours are:

  • Monday to Friday – 7am to 5pm
  • Saturday – 8am to 1pm
  • Sunday and Public Holidays – no work is permitted
  • demolition and excavation works are permitted between 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday only.
