It is important for residents to now monitor compliance with the Rules of Construction and report any breaches to TIDC’s 24 hour Construction Response line 1800 775 465.


  • A community liaison group must be prepared who have details of the works, the community communication plan, complaints management plan and are provided all reasonable requests for information
  • Prior to any work commencing, the community must be notified and given full details.
  • Construction hours are Mon to Fri, 7am to 6pm and Sat 8am to 1pm except for emergency or safety requirement
  • Operational noise should be within work hours and comply with the NSW Noise Policy
  • All heavy vehicles should enter via the temporary road. A secondary access route via City Road, Golden Grove, Wilson, Burren St can be used in exceptional circumstances (largely in initial construction).
  • Complaints should be responded to within 2 hours with a written response within 7 days. Details are to be recorded in a complaints register.
  • Building condition surveys must be completed before jack hammering etc to all buildings within 50 metres from the edge. Damage is to be remediated.
