Control of noise and vibration on construction sites

Although it is far from a new issue, we have seen a significant increase in the use
of notices under Section 60 of the Control of Pollution Act 1974 (COPA) by local
authorities in relation to noise and vibration from construction sites and a greater
readiness by local authorities to enforce breaches of such notices.

This enforcement option exists in addition to the use of abatement notices underthe statutory nuisance regime under the Environmental Protection Act 1990(the EPA).
