Draft Code of Construction Practice - November 2018


The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea’s existing Code of Construction Practice has been in place since April 2016. It has been successful in bringing a step change in the borough in how construction sites are managed to mitigate their impact. The 2016 Code mainly focused on issues around noise, vibration and dust. It is now being expanded to cover the full gamut of construction impacts. The planning enforcement team has led a pilot scheme in 2018 which has taken a pro-active and collaborative approach to the monitoring and enforcement of construction sites to address the frustration of residents who perceive that a number of construction sites are often poorly managed and enforced.

This cohesive Draft Code for consultation has been developed as a result of the lessons learnt from the pilot. It sets out what the Council will expect from developers or those engaged in construction activities in the borough. The expectation is that all construction sites in the borough meet and exceed the requirements or best practice set out in this revised Code.


The Council is consulting on the Code for eight weeks from 30 November 2018 to 25 January 2019. We welcome your views on the Code, please submit your comments on-line using the Response Form below. Alternatively, the response form is also available in MS word format below in case you would like to send it by email or post (the form includes the relevant address to return).
