CONTROL OF POLLUTION ACT 1974 – SECTION 61

 PRIOR CONSENT FOR WORK ON CONSTRUCTION SITES 

Transportation of Aggregate 

As part of the site set up process, there will be a total of 7 deliveries, by sea, of aggregate materials being transported from Norway into Tilbury1 between now and September.

Due to sailing times and port berth restrictions, when the ship docks, we have to off load and transport the aggregate from the ship to the Tilbury2 site to allow the ship to then sail again with a 3/4 day timescale.

As the time constraints for offloading is dictated by sailing times, this will require lorry and machinery movements outside of the notified site working hours, which may involve weekend and night time movements.

A Section 61 Application, (variation to working hours) was made to the local authority Environmental Health Team who look after noise and pollution matters and Consent has been given under Section 61(1) of the Control of Pollution Act 1974 for the site team to carry out continuous aggregate deliveries and for stockpile management associated with these deliveries.

Update

10th May 2019

Currently the ship discharging aggregate materials is docked at Tilbury and will continue to unload until Sunday morning.
