Unauthorised out of hours Construction works and noise pollution
If you see works being conducted outside of our standard construction hours and they are not listed in our approved out of hours, contact our Customer Service Centre and ask to speak to our Council rangers who will investigate.
For Council staff to assist, please be ready to provide key details about the disturbance, including dates, times, type and location of the works.
Standard construction hours
Monday to Friday
7am - 7pm (for B3 Commercial Core and B4 Mixed Use)
7am - 5pm (for all other zones)
8am - 1pm
No work permitted
Council can approve work outside of these hours, however approval is only granted in extreme circumstances, like shop fit-outs overnight or where demolition or erection of structures such as cranes or hoardings may be a risk to public safety during daylight hours. Please note, some third parties do not need Council permission to carry out emergency works.
Members of the public wishing to report or inquire about noise pollution should contact the organisation responsible for its regulation on the NSW Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) website.
