4    Your draft policy para 34.3.75 simply says "Appropriate approval"

relating to noise and dust.

         It should contain more, such as "The applicant must provide a fully working 24/7 noise meter installed and

         operational prior to any construction work starting which can be used to provide evidence of actual levels of

         construction noise produced".

         What is the evidence that a 2.3m hoarding is sufficient to prevent dust escaping from a "basement" site? Can 3m

         hoardings be made mandatory?
