Notify us of work outside permitted construction hours

Advise us when you must conduct construction work outside normal permitted construction work hours.

If you must do construction work, including roading and maintenance, outside normal permitted hours of 7.30am to 6.00pm (Monday to Saturday) complete the construction noise notification form.

Notifying both Council and the Community is a key noise management measure for any construction works conducted outside typical hours.
