What is a Section 61?
Galliford Try and their sub contractors have to abide by the terms set out in our working contract. These set the agreed working hours (7am to 7pm) and the permitted noise levels.
On occasions conditions necessitate having to work outside these agreed hours or to carry out work which exceeds the agreed noise limits.
When this happens we have to apply for prior consent under Section 61 of the Control of Pollution Act 1974 from Teignbridge District Council. Only when this has been granted can we proceed with the works.
Below you can view all the applications made so far.
