Motions on Notice

Councillor L Brown to Move

 

This council notes that the Control of Pollution Act 1974 empowers local authorities to serve a notice imposing requirements as to how construction works should be carried out to minimise noise and nuisance.

 

This council further notes that the majority of councils across the UK impose the following limits on working hours on building sites:

 

·         Monday-Friday, 8am-6pm

·         Saturdays, 8am-1pm

·         No work on Sundays or bank holidays.

 

This council therefore resolves (without prejudice to its capacity vary such conditions as and when advisable) to formalise the standard condition on hours of working to be applied to planning consents across County Durham as follows:

 

·         Monday-Friday, 8am-6pm

·         Saturdays, 8am-1pm

·         No work on Sundays or bank holidays.
