Temporary modifification of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 and the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 to enable certain construction working hours to be extended.
Under section 74B of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 you can now apply for urgent changes to construction working hours. This is to support safe construction working in line with the government's latest social distancing guidance on construction and other outdoor work.
Local authorities have 14 days to consider and respond to such requests. If a request is approved, this will temporarily amend planning restrictions on construction working hours until 1 April 2021.
An earlier end date may be requested by the applicant or decided by the local planning authority with the agreement of the applicant. If a request is not determined within 14 days (excluding public holidays), the revised working hours are deemed to have been consented to and construction can take place in accordance with these new hours.
Requests must be submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and should clearly indicate in the subject heading 'Request for extension of contracted working hours'.
