18. We are also concerned that no reference is made in either paragraph 34.3.75 or CL7 to the importance of monitoring, especially of noise levels. The Council must be in a position to make it a condition for basement developments that there should be 24-hour recorded monitoring of noise levels. Without this, it would be much harder for the Council to impose orders under pollution legislation where this becomes necessary. Moreover, the very existence of monitoring is likely to encourage contractors to minimise nuisances such as noise. Policy 7j should be amended to add to the end: “and how noise and other nuisances will be monitored”, and corresponding wording on the need for monitoring included in the supporting text.
