The City of Sydney Council introduced a new policy and accompanying guidelines as of January 1st 2015, click here. These changes impact all construction hoardings and scaffolding installed within the City of Sydney local government area.
Under this policy, new standards for graphics have been developed that builders must comply with. All hoarding fences and fascias must use set guidelines to ensure an improved appearance and vibrancy. Specific guidelines include:
Scaffolding erected on a public road must be protected at street level by a 2m high ply-sheet hoarding fence; and
Scaffolding can be place on the deck of a hoarding, which can accommodate site sheds.
Graphic displays on hoardings are now mandatory in certain circumstances such as the location (city centre and non-city centre) and the duration of the project. These guidelines allow creative freedom for developers, builders and suppliers and create a visually appealing site. Alternatively, these guidelines will attempt to reduce graffiti and poster damage.
