Construction Work Noise
Noise from building works is dealt with differently. The law accepts that there can be a lot of noise from building sites that just cannot be helped. It therefore gives powers to limit hours of working for jobs that cause noise beyond the site boundary. The Council would usually suggest 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday, 8am to 1pm on Saturdays as suitable working hours, with no noisy works at all on Sundays or Bank Holidays. However, there are some situations where the Council would allow some flexibility with these hours, especially when there are health and safety or good road traffic reasons for doing so.
