Following queries regarding ‘reduced impact hours’, the City of London Corporation’s Code of Practice for Deconstruction and Construction Sites states:

Reduced Impact Hours

The City Corporation requires time restrictions on noisy works to reduce noise disturbance to businesses. These times are known as ‘reduced impact hours’ which are:

  • 10:00 - 12:00 (Monday to Friday)
  • 14:00 - 16:00 (Monday to Friday).

‘Reduced impact hours’ are put in place to give nearby commercial occupiers at least 4 hours without noisy working from street and construction sites during the working day. These periods may be subject to variation in particular circumstances, for example during lunchtimes, adjacent to eating places or businesses where the majority of trade is carried out at lunchtimes.

Work outside standard hours and during reduced impact hours

  • Outside ‘standard hours’ and during ‘reduced impact hours’ the following noise generating activities will not usually be permitted where the activities are likely to cause disturbance
  • Cutting using power tools
  • Breaking out using power tools
  • Other noise generating activities, depending on the specific location of site and neighbours.
  • The use of impact fastener
  • The loading of heavy materials
  • Other noisy activities, depending on the specific location of site and neighbours, deemed unacceptable by Environmental Health Officers.
