Block Open for Inspection is off again

Local restrictions mean producers have been forced to abandon plans for a Community Day.

For the second year running The Block will be forced to abandon plans for its annual Open for Inspection event due to local restrictions.

Nine sources confirm the usual Block Open for Inspection won’t take place this year. However the Auction is pressing ahead, albeit with some changes.

Earlier this year executive producer Julian Cress told TV Tonight, “We want to try and put on a Community Day to friends, neighbours, community groups that were associated with this season. We did some really nice charity work across the series with some local groups. We want to invite them along to see how it all turned out.”

But that was before Melbourne’s third wave in the pandemic.

From Friday restrictions will allow for 10 visitors to the home per day, and 15 outdoors (50 outdoors for auctions), but they are expected to lift further in early November.

Nine’s Auction is tipped to screen on Sunday November 7.
