From time to time large scale infrastructure and construction projects take place that are unavoidable due to their national importance or a strategic improvement for socio-economic reasons. Many of these projects have the potential to cause disruption to existing residents which is unavoidable.
Where this is likely to happen WRS will engage in negotiations with planners, development managers and contractors involved and will agree the best methods of reducing the impact of noise, dust and vibration on members of the local community. This is normally done through the brokering of a legal agreement under the Control of Pollution Act 1974. Section 61 of the Act allows developers and building contractors to apply for ‘Prior Consent’ where noise generating activities may occur during the construction phase of a development.
1. Worcestershire Parkway
Worcestershire Parkway forms part of the wider £50million plus rail investment programme in Worcestershire and is a key part of the longer term Worcestershire Rail Investment Strategy. This scheme will provide sustainable access to regional and national destinations by rail, including the south-west, north-east, London and the Thames Valley. The steel frame building will begin to take shape over the coming months as well as the footbridge over the railway line from Woodbury Lane. Due to the proximity of existing railway infrastructure certain engineering processes must be undertaken during unsociable hours. WRS is currently working with the site contractor to ensure that noise and vibration from the pile driving opperations is kept to a minimum. Details of the working consent for 1st December 2018 to 19th January 2019 is available here : -
