Code of construction practice
A code of construction practice (CoCP) sets out the standards and procedures to which a developer or contractor must adhere in order to manage the potential environmental impacts of construction works.
- Permitted working hours.
- Liaison with neighbours.
- Noise and dust monitoring.
- Air quality.
- Agriculture, forestry and soil.
- Cultural heritage.
- Land and landscape protection.
- Traffic and transport.
- Waste management.
CoCP’s may be attached to a planning permission, or they may form part of the contract documentation for a project. Suppliers, or developers may be required to develop a site environmental management plan (SEMP) setting out how they will comply with the CoCP.
