Planning Rules relaxed for construction hours
The property and construction industry accounts for almost 400,000 jobs and 10% of the NSW economy. In order to keep work sites and jobs flowing during COVID-19, the State Government has made a Direction that standard construction hours can been extended to include weekends and public holidays. During these extended hours such works cannot include rock breaking, rock hammering, pile driving or similar activities.
