Noise from building sites
Noisy work should normally only take place between:
- Monday to Friday: 7.30am to 6pm
- Saturday: 8.30am to 2pm
No noisy work should be done on Sundays or Bank holidays.
The workers can arrive 30 minutes before they start work.
If you have a problem the first thing to do is speak to the company doing the work. If this doesn't work let us know and we'll investigate.
If you are a building contractor then you should let local residents know, give them contact details and apply for prior consent (section 61), before the work starts. View and read the guidance document before applying for prior consent.
