Main construction works

Being a considerate neighbour

We are now consulting with the local community on our draft Construction Management Plan (CMP).

The CMP outlines how we will ensure that the construction works will be managed safely and to the highest standards, minimising noise and disruption to neighbours.

You can download a full copy of our draft CMP by clicking here.

Working hours

We are proposing that construction works will only take place during the following days and times. These will need to be agreed by Camden Council following this consultation of the CMP:

Monday to Friday: 8.00am – 18.00pm (with any ‘noisy works’ restricted on a voluntary basis to the hours of 8.00am – 10.00am, 12.00pm – 14.00pm, 16.00pm – 18.00pm). This is in line with Camden Council’s guidance for construction.

Saturday: 8.00am – 13.00pm (If agreed by Camden Council, no ‘noisy works’ to take place)

Travel Safety

  • The primary access route for vehicles is expected to be via Wild Street merging onto Kemble Street.
  • All unloading and loading activities will take place on the site. Engines will be turned off immediately once vehicles enter the site.
  • Vehicles will then leave the site by following the one-way system on Keeley Street, turning left onto Kemble Street and then finally turning left onto Kingsway. There will be two egress gates, one which exits onto Keeley Street and one that exits onto Kemble Street.
  • Traffic marshals will guide vehicles to and from the site.
  • No roads will need to close during the duration of the works, except for the erection of a crane during demolition works for two days. This would normally be over a weekend to minimise traffic disruption. Residents will be notified well in advance of this taking place.
  • Ensuring pedestrian and cycle safety is maintained around the site during construction is a priority and traffic marshals will be present to manage this.

Noise and dust

  • Noise, dust and vibration monitors will be installed, providing real time monitoring with text and email alerts sent to the project team if agreed levels have been breached. When an alert is received the works will cease.

  • Acoustic barriers will be installed to mitigate noise.

  • A monarflexed scaffold will be installed before demolition works to protect nearby buildings and residents from dust.

Covid-19

Erith are fully committed to keeping their workforce and neighbours safe during this time, with all works following the guidelines set out in their COVID-19 management documents which can be accessed on their website.

Seaforth Land requires all contractors to abide by Camden Council’s requirements for building and construction and the Considerate Constructors Scheme, whereby contractors will commit to giving the utmost consideration to their impact on neighbours and the public.
