17th August 2021
by The Landscape Association
Landscapers who live in the Local Government Areas of concern (Bayside, Blacktown, Burwood, Campbelltown, Canterbury-Bankstown, Cumberland, Fairfield, Georges River, Liverpool, Parramatta, Strathfield, and some suburbs of Penrith) are now permitted to undertake outdoor work at occupied sites in their own Local Government Area. See here for the full details.
For local government areas of concern, prescribed work (renovations, repairs, maintenance or cleaning) can continue if:
Prescribed work in an outdoor area does not have to be necessary. You do not need an exemption or confirmation from the NSW Government to do prescribed work in an outdoor area.
Examples of prescribed work in an outdoor area include:
This change has come as a direct result of the work TLA has been doing with industry groups and the NSW Government and we continue to advocate on behalf of the industry to see further easing of restrictions in a COVID-safe way.
From Monday 16 August, people who live in any of the LGAs of concern and who work on un-occupied construction sites anywhere in NSW are eligible to make priority bookings for vaccinations. See here for details and booking links.
