Council only approves work outside standard construction hours in extreme circumstances. Examples include overnight shop fit-outs or where demolition or erection of structures may be a risk to public safety during daylight hours.
Please note, we are not the only authority who can approve out of hours works. There may be additional approved works we are not aware of (for emergencies, water works etc).
Council has a management plan for out of hours works which provides additional guidance.

- Monday to Friday - 7am to 5pm
- Saturday - 8am to 1pm
