Construction regulation

Construction regulation

Working with the construction sector

The City's construction regulation team mainly provides liaison services to the construction sector. We also grant various approvals to allow works in public spaces including hoisting activity over a public road, temporary works and road openings

We monitor construction sites and their impact on public spaces such as inspecting hoardings, works zones, road openings, and temporary works. This includes barricading and the construction and ongoing condition of temporary vehicle crossings.

We also check site operations to ensure they comply with the conditions of development consent related to construction activity impacts in public spaces.

Limited end of year approvals

Due to extended retail trading hours, school holidays and increased pedestrian traffic across the City's local area over the Christmas and New Year period there will be limited construction approvals.   

Construction work approvals including crane licences, temporary works permits, road opening permits and hoarding works will be limited from Monday 11 December to Tuesday 2 January 2018.

You can download a map showing the exclusion zones.

All applications submitted will be treated on a case by case basis but are not guaranteed.
