A contractor conducting demolition or construction works on a development will need consent from the local authority to limit noise, vibration and dust before work begins on site per the Control of Pollution Act 1974 (CoPA). Either Option 1 or Option 2 may be requested by the local authority:
- Option 1 – Construction Management Plan (CMP)
- Option 2 – Section 60 or Section 61 (S60 or S61) application
To assess noise for a CMP or S60 or S61 application, Climate will request further information from the contractor to accurately predict noise, vibration and dust from your site as per BS5228.
A contractor is responsible for all actions on site and is liable for any breaches to the limits set. Climate Acoustics alert its clients immediately by text, email or phone. Our proactive approach helps all our clients immediately resolve the issue and our consultants are on hand to react to the situation whenever necessary. Also, our audio recording capability may identify the source of the noise problem.
