Saturday Morning Construction Works - Code of Construction Practice

The City Corporation is reviewing the existing ‘standard hours’ arrangements for Saturday mornings for construction activities. We are asking for comments as widely as possible so that our elected Members are aware of your views when considering this matter.

The high level of development in the Square Mile, including major office redevelopments in the east and infrastructure projects has the potential for significant environmental impacts on occupiers of nearby premises. Protecting City businesses, residents and other noise sensitive premises (eg schools) from noise and vibration impacts of construction sites is a necessary part of ensuring the City is an excellent place to live, work, learn and to do business.

Saturday work for construction activity is considered the industry norm and has been accepted nationally. It helps in practical ways as, for example, fewer people and vehicles are on the street at weekends so there are less public safety implications with works, and it is easier to move large vehicles and loads on streets. Projects use the additional hours to carry out works which speeds up the completion of projects and reduces the length of impact on neighbours.

The City has been asked to consider the principle of ending or revising the ‘standard hours’ working arrangements for Saturdays.

All views are welcome.
