Download the guide Construction Noise Guide

In the field of construction noise and vibration, the association has identified a need for practical guidance to assist practitioners in adopting a consistent approach when applying for prior consent under Section 61 of the Control of Pollution Act 1974 and to demonstrate suitable levels of rigour and professionalism in preparing information for that purpose. The objective of this good practice guide is to provide guidance for that purpose.

This guide may also assist others (developers, project and programme managers, decision makers, local environmental health practitioners and members of the public) in improving consistency in the use of the Section 61 prior consent process. In addition, the guidance provided in this document may also serve to assist anyone involved in the preparation of construction noise and vibration management plans or other similar documents where the Section 61 process itself is not applicable.
