Construction Site Noise
Construction Site Noise and Dust
Milton Keynes is the fastest developing city in the country, which means there is a lot of new building. This construction activity can be either on one small plot, or an estate, either way, it can cause problems to those living nearby.
Each year, the council receives over a hundred complaints from people affected by noise, dust and other problems from construction sites.
The Council has enforcement powers to deal with environmental problems arising from construction working. However, when we become aware of a problem our first action is to discuss the situation with the site operators. We often find that site operators are unaware of the problems they may be causing and once it is brought to their notice they are only too happy to co-operate in taking action to deal with the problem.
We recommend all operators of construction sites in Milton Keynes to join the Considerate Contractors Scheme and adhere to their Code of Considerate Practice. For details of the scheme see www.ccscheme.org.uk
Whether you are a resident affected by a construction site, or you are a developer seeking advice to minimise the impact of your site, please contact the Regulatory Unit via 01908 252398 or preferably by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
