We are committed to limiting inconvenience to the public but construction works will bring some inevitable disruptions. If your property is within an affected work area, our contractor will contact you to advise you of activities.
We ask that members of the public do not interfere with the equipment, material or signage used by contractors, as this may cause health and safety hazards and could delay the project.
AT and the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board are aware of concerns from the community about the need for increased parking for customers of local businesses.
The Local Board is investigating the possibility of installing new parking bays in the area as a separate exercise from the Torbay Revitalisation project.
