The range of restrictions for the construction industry introduced by the NSW Government today apply to landscape construction as well as building construction. If you have commenced, or are planning, construction works you must now comply with these restrictions.
Construction activity pause
From Monday 12:01am on 19 July 2021, work at construction sites in Greater Sydney including the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour, is not to be carried out unless the work is urgently required
to ensure the safety or security of the construction site
to deal with environmental risks
to maintain and ensure the integrity of critical plant, equipment or assets, including partially completed works, that would otherwise deteriorate
to receive deliveries of supplies that would otherwise deteriorate
to maintain public utilities
to ensure the safe operation of existing transport infrastructure
by or on behalf of NSW Health in response to the COVID-19 pandemic
because of an emergency
Residential renovations, alterations and additions
All renovations or other works at a place of residence to make alterations or additions are not allowed unless they are necessary for the safety or security of the site.
This means that the site of any existing renovations can be made safe and secure, but then all work must stop.
