It is important that the aims and progress of construction work, are made transparent to the local community.
This can be achieved by distributing frequent letters, newsletters or bulletins to keep the public constantly updated and help to minimise any frustrations which may arise.
Constant communication between the site and community should be made a priority by all contractors.
The Considerate Constructors Scheme have put together a neighbourhood introduction letter template for smaller sites.
This can be adapted to make it site specific and be given to all neighbours potentially affected by construction activities.
The letter helps to explain when works are taking place, how long for and when disruptions may occur.
Please be aware that this Scheme document has been produced as a template, which can be adapted to meet the individual needs of your site/company.
