The Council sets time limits at the beginning and end of the working day as a means to restrict the period that residents and others will experience construction noise. The permitted hours for any works that are audible at the site boundary are:
Monday to Friday 8.00am to 6.30pm and Saturday 8.00am to 1.00pm
Noisy works are not permitted on Sundays or bank holidays.
If you are disturbed by noisy works outside the permitted hours, please contact the Council’s Noise and Nuisance service on 020 7361 3002. Further information.
Damage to adjoining structures due to vibration, even if superficial e.g. cracked plasterwork may be provided for under the terms of a party wall agreement, but please note this is not a matter for which the Council is empowered to act. For further information on party wall agreements please visit the planning portal website.
