COUNCIL’S RESPONSE TO NOISE COMPLAINTS FROM PILING WORK AT MOSELEY WOOD BOTTOM

I have just received this update from the Planning Enforcement officer.

“Dear Councillor

Colleagues in environmental health have been looking into this. From the information submitted their method and selection of piling appears reasonable and they have considered the factors set out in BS5228:2009+A12014. Control of noise from construction sites.

At this moment Environmental Health would not consider they cease piling operations.

The works are to continue this week from Monday the 28th January to Thursday 31st January depending on ground conditions. The working hours for the piling rig is 8 o’clock until 4 o’clock. Approx., it takes about half an hour to set rig up.

MY understanding is this complies with the Construction Management Plan.

Regards

Senior Planning Compliance Officer
