Hoardings, Gantries and Scaffolding

Hoardings, Gantries and Scaffolding are used at building sites throughout our city to contain works within the site and to prevent building materials from spilling onto footpaths and to ensure the safety of city patrons.

Hoardings should be constructed in solid, new materials and painted white, however, murals and streetscapes on hoardings can increase their visual appeal and are encouraged. Applicants are requested to submit designs when applying for a Hoarding, Gantry and Scaffold Approval.
