The question I would be asking of the EHO is, is there a Section 61 in place which permits the noisy activities at xx:xxhrs and if so, what are the constraints?
Also, if the sweeper is there because of dust generated from the demolition then the contractor is almost certainly in breach of legislation as it has a duty of care to reduce risk (actually eliminate is the first port of call) and protect the public and its own workforce and there are many means by which dust emissions can be controlled.
I've just heard that Paris Jackson has been admitted to hospital with a suspected suicide attempt. I do feel for these kids. It can't have been easy living in the shadow of Michael Jackson. No matter how wealthy you are, privacy must be horrendously difficult.
Lets hope she gets the treatment she needs.

The contractors are good at containing dust etc. they have to be especially careful as the site is adjacent to the main London to Kent railway line. The street sweeper was there for routine clearance of leaves etc.

Southwark Council are a strange lot. Great in many respects, but strange in others.Originally Posted by Gabriel1
I remember having dealings with London Underground where I was overseening a stone cleaning contract at Bank. The requirements for additional protection to scaffolding near the station access points were rigorous, to say the least. It was perfectly understandable - despite the contractor's complaints.
