Wollongong City Council has been working to stamp down on non-compliance at construction sites across the city.

The Building Sites Compliance Program was launched in November 2022 in direct response to a number of significant non-compliance incidents at construction sites, which occurred during heavy rain events.

The Program is part of an 18-month trial that focusses on a proactive approach to inspections to ensure the requirements around the key operations of building and subdivision sites including sediment and erosion control, dust management, waste management, noise and hours of operation are being met.

This focus continues other work in the compliance area including two free educative workshops held in August last year to support local building companies, project supervisors, private certifiers and others to improve their onsite sediment controls.
