Construction and Demolition
Construction and demolition sites by their very nature are noisy and we therefore find it reasonable for them to operate during the normal working hours of 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm Saturday as the noise they produce is unavoidable.
If noisy works are taking place outside of these hours, on Sundays or bank holidays and it is impacting your ability to enjoy your property on a regular basis, please notify us using the noise report form above.
If you are a developer, please ensure you keep site operations within the normal working hours above and see the Planning pages for advice about carrying out noise impact assessments.
