Over the last few months, Mirvac has been working closely with our contractor to develop a programme that would help minimise the impact of these works to neighbouring residents whilst maintaining compliance with RMS approval.
This includes the implementation of respite periods in between each stage of work (as opposed to a continuation of each stage one after the other) to ensure that sufficient break is provided to residents.
As such works will be carried out across the following three periods:
Stage 1 (13th September – 20th October): Works to be carried out between 5:00pm – 9:00pm, Monday to Wednesdays.
Stage 2 (Late November – pre-Christmas): Works to be carried out between 8:00pm – 5:00am across a maximum of 3 nights per week.
Stage 3 (mid-January to mid-February): Works to be carried out between 8:00pm – 5:00am across a maximum of 3 nights per week.
To help minimise the overall impact of the works the Stage 1 works will see high impact noisy works cease by 5:00pm and for the Stage 2 and 3 works, high impact noisy works will be limited 8:00pm – 12:00am, with non-high impact noisy works scheduled between 12:00am – 5:00am.
We will be issuing the attached notification the adjacent residents today and in recognition of the impact on local traffic networks, we would appreciate your assistance in communicating information about the works to your respective members.
Please let me know if you required any further information.

The last 15 months have been particularly challenging in Australia, due to a series of unprecedented shocks including record-breaking drought and heat, the Black Summer bushfires and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Willoughby City Council’s draft Resilient Willoughby Strategy and Action Plan identifies the range of shocks and stresses most likely to impact on people and the environment in the Willoughby area and proposes a range of actions to help the community overcome them in the future. Some of the shocks and stresses are with us now, like the impact of bushfires or expensive housing, whilst some have yet to occur.
You are invited to read the draft Plan and tell us what you think. See https://www.willoughby.nsw.gov.au/Council/News-and-media/Draft-Resilient-Willoughby-Strategy-endorsed-for-public-exhibition
Willoughby City Council is already involved in a range of activities to enhance resilience in the community, including supporting the Live Well in Willoughby Program, providing community services for our elderly and implementing planning controls to ensure our buildings and public places are sustainable and better adapted to withstand the impacts of climate change.
Important new actions in the draft Plan include outreach services to support vulnerable youth, implementing a suite of measures to better address urban heat and establishing multi-purpose greenways to encourage walking and cycling and provide better connections to parks, open spaces, bushland and foreshores.
Everyone is welcome to read the draft Plan and provide comments via Council’s Have Your Say website https://www.haveyoursaywilloughby.com.au/resilience-plan by the due date of Sunday 25 July.
If you’d like to find out more about the development of the draft Plan you can tune into a webinar on Tuesday 6th July 2021 from 6pm to 7pm. See the Have Your Say website for booking details.
If your progress association is interested in receiving a presentation about the draft Resilient Willoughby Plan at an upcoming association meeting, please get in touch.
We look forward to receiving your feedback.
