Advice and information for developers and for the local community on risks of pollution from construction work. The local authority will monitor construction work to minimise pollution caused by noise, dust and other nuisances.
What the service is for:
We deal with complaints which may allege that excessive noise, vibration or dust is arising from construction work. See pollution control – noise and pollution control – statutory nuisances.
We also regulate hours of operation of construction sites using the provisions of the Control of Pollution Act 1974.
Advice can be given to builders and developers as to best practice.
It is useful to have supporting evidence to hand when you make your complaint.
How long will it take:
We aim to make an initial response to your complaint within 24 hrs of you contacting us and investigate your complaint fully within 8 weeks.
