The Council is introducing a Code of Construction Practice on minimising the negative effects of construction noise, vibration and dust on residents and businesses.

Construction work can be noisy, dusty and cause vibrations.  It is, however, part and parcel of everyday life. As Kensington and Chelsea is one of the most densely populated parts of the country it is very important that we are able to ensure the negative effects of construction do not cause unnecessary disturbance to the borough’s residents and businesses.

To address these negative effects, the Council has drafted a Code of Construction Practice.  There is a 16-week consultation period (1 July to 21 October 2015) during which you have the opportunity to read and comment on the draft. At the end of the consultation period, all responses will be considered and the Code amended as appropriate prior to its formal adoption in late 2015.
