CONTROL OF POLLUTION ACT 1974, SECTION
Additional hours granted by EH Manager, Emma
Bourne, to Sir Robert McAlpine for noisy construction works to the
Victoria Square car park for a period of three months from 05
February 2021 to 05 May 2021. Additional hours will include; 18:00
to 07:00 on Monday to Fridays, 13:00 to 18:00 on Saturdays and
09:00 to 17:00 on Sundays.
It is accepted that these additional hours are
for the purpose of completing the structural steel and precast
concrete installations to the spiral ramp and car park.
Local residents and businesses will be informed of the works prior to commencement and SRM will be conducting on-going noise, vibration and dust monitoring and continued co-operation with their Local Authority and local residents.
overnight noisy works have been operating for an extensive period now and EH have had no / very occasional complaints (those that have come in have ended up being investigated and attributed to other nearby development works).
There is an encouragement to get this work progressed as quickly as possible following delays caused by the earlier lockdown period of the pandemic.
Regular site meetings with SRM confirm on-going noise, vibration and dust monitoring and co-operation with ourselves and the local residents.
