Dust and emission control measures

For all construction sites, developers should implement the appropriate dust and pollution control measures as set out in the Greater London Authority's supplementary planning guidance to ensure the air quality impacts of construction and demolition are minimised and any mitigation measures employed are effective. 

Developers will need to ensure that all contractors follow best practice at all times to control and limit emissions of gaseous and particulate pollutants into the atmosphere from construction and demolition activities, including from vehicles and plant. 

The developer and contractor are to actively monitor the site to ensure the control of dust and emissions. Dry and windy conditions increase the likelihood of dust and emissions being produced and dispersed, so extra site monitoring should take place during these times.
