Coronavirus update 13 March 2020

COVID-19 restrictions: what's closed and what's open.

If you want to carry out building or construction works on a non-residential property before or after hours, you need to apply for an Out-of-Hours Works Permit.

Standard hours for carrying out works on a building site are:

  • 7am to 6.30pm, Monday to Thursday
  • 7am to 5pm, Friday
  • 8am to 5pm, Saturday.

Out-of-hours works with a current planning permit or Construction Management Plan

If you have a planning permit, or an endorsed Construction Management Plan, which specifies construction hours, you will need to request written consent from our Statutory Planning Department to work outside of these hours.

To contact Statutory Planning, call 9278 4888 or email [email protected] (Att: Statutory Planning). 

How to apply

You need to submit your application at least 14 days before you want to work out of hours.
