TRADESMEN and creditors of the troubled public housing development in Harbour Drive, Coffs Harbour, were delivered another setback yesterday.
Administrators to St Hilliers Construction Pty Ltd, Trent Hancock and Michael Hird of Moore Stephens Sydney Corporate Recovery Group, advised four more construction sites will reopen on Monday.
But the Coffs Harbour site isn't among them.
The favoured four are all Department of Defence contracts with a total project value of $170 million and follow the reopening of four construction sites on Thursday.
In a prepared statement, the administrator and St Hilliers executive chairman Tim Casey said they are in "active dialogue with all clients regarding all St Hilliers Construction Pty Ltd sites with the objective of reopening all remaining sites.
The statement said that following "a constructive meeting" with NSW Public Works on Friday, there was optimism the NSW social housing projects would reopen in the coming week.
Coffs Harbour tradesmen working on the Harbour Drive public housing block are waiting on a payment of $660,000.
