We are very aware that due to the current restrictions placed on our ability to leave home due to COVID-19, more people are at home during the day when construction work generally takes place. Standard construction working hours as permitted by Southwark Council are:
- Monday – Friday 8am-6pm
- Saturday – 8am-2pm (no noisy works before 9am)
Our contractors are using every measure possible to reduce noise impact from their sites and continue to use noise monitoring equipment to continuously monitor noise levels to ensure they are at an acceptable level, as permitted by Southwark Council. Excessively noisy works currently take place on a 2 hour on/off basis to minimise disruption. Our contractors are currently reviewing their working hours to respond to industry advice relating to COVID-19 around the use of public transport in order to allow their workforce to travel outside of peak times when using public transport and encourage other modes of travel.
In the event that working hours change, or as and when overnight works are required, we will update this web post.
