Construction Working Hours

For all our Construction clients, the Government has published the latest draft guidance which sets out further detail on the proposed new route for applicants seeking to extend construction site working hours introduced in the Business and Planning Bill.

The aim of the new temporary fast track deemed consent route under section 74B of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 is to enable urgent changes to construction working hours to support safe construction working in line with the government’s latest social distancing guidance on construction and other outdoor work. For many construction sites, implementation of this guidance will require changes to working practices, including staggered starts and finishes, requiring different hours of operation to those which are currently permitted for the site through planning conditions.
