Building Work

If you are planning to erect scaffolding at the rear of your property or to introduce building machinery into the gardens via one of the garden gates, you will need to obtain a permit – download  building permit.pdf here, you will also be required to pay a deposit of £500 for scaffolding of which £100 is non-refundable or in the case of heavy machinery for building works a deposit of £1000 including £250 which is non-refundable.

Please contact the committee member in charge of building permits on:

Please make the payment by BACS and write a cheque for the deposit to be given to the committee member responsible for building works & scaffolding, who will hold it on file against any damages until the project is complete.

You will need 2 copies of the permit, building permit.pdf one for yourself and one for the committee, and you might want to print a third copy to give to your contractor.

Please read the Agreed Procedure for access through the gardens included in the Permit document.

Please also make sure that your contractor keeps the gates shut when he is not bringing in or taking out materials.   It is important to stress that quite apart from the security aspect to other residents there are often children playing in the gardens and their safety is of prime concern.

Permitted hours for noisy works under the rules of RBKC: 
8am to 6pm – Monday to Friday
At no time – Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays
