Section 60 - basements

Basement developments which fall under Westminster’s CoCP are not generally required to make an application under Section 61 Control of Pollution Act 1974.

However, from 2 January 2018 the council served Section 60 Notices on all CoCP basement developments. These Section 60s will reflect the standard CoCP requirements (eg CoCP working hours), any additional conditions will always be discussed with the principal contractor. 

From 1st November 2020 Code of Construction charges and monitoring costs have changed.  See appendix f - code of construction fees and charges above for amended costs.
