General Site Operations 3.1 Working Hours and Timing of Works


36 Working hours are specified in Requirement 30, Schedule A, Part 3 of the DCO. During the construction period normal working hours will be between 0700 hours and 1900 hours Monday to Saturday, with no activity on Sundays or public holidays. A restriction on Saturday working hours to between 0700 and 1400 will be in place at Works Number 26.


37


In certain circumstances, when work is required to be undertaken at specific times to maintain construction programme or address particular logistical, construction or environmental constraints (e.g. tidally dependent works), such as continuous processes lasting more than 12 hours or where emergency works are required, different working hours may be required. These are set out in the DCO and include:


where continuous periods of operation are required, such as concrete pouring and directional drilling


for internal fit out works associated with the onshore converter station


for the delivery of abnormal loads to the connection works, which may cause congestion on the local road network where works are being carried out on the foreshore where works are being carried out on the foreshore as otherwise agreed in writing with the relevant planning authority.


38


In these circumstances, approval will be sought prior to the works commencing and sensitive receptors notified of the proposals. The type of receptor deemed to be sensitive will vary depending on the works, but broad categories will be defined in later iterations of the Code of Construction Practice. Where works are undertaken out-with consented hours in response to emergency situations, the Local Authority will be advised as soon as practical, outlining the circumstances for the works, the likely duration and the mitigation measures implemented. Approval will not be sought for 24 hr working at Works No. 21 or Works No. 26.


39


EAOL will use best endeavours to minimise the duration of, and sensitively time, construction activities. The relevant local planning authorities will be advised of the likely timetable of works. This timetable will also be shared with affected communities through the local community liaison officer.
