COVID Noise Changes

Noise / Works Outside the Designated Hours of Consent (Associated to DA's and CDCS) 

The NSW Government has made key changes to the NSW Planning System to enable the flexibility required to respond to, and aid the economic recovery from, the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Amendments made to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (NSW) (EP&A Act) on 25 March 2020 give the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces wide ranging new powers to make orders enabling the carrying out of development which is "necessary to protect the health, safety and welfare of members of the public during the COVID-19 pandemic" (COVID-19 Ministerial Orders). Details of this new power and existing COVID-19 Ministerial Orders already made are on the NSW Legislation Gazette.

Construction Work Days Order

The Construction Work Days Order authorises certain construction work to be carried out on a Saturday, Sunday or Public Holiday in line with the construction hours permitted on week days.
The Construction Work Days Order currently applies only to construction work which is being carried out under a development consent, including a State significant development consent, under the EP&A Act.

For further information refer to NSW Legislation Gazette.
