        Are you looking for something specific? The only "lists" are the housing acts and related legal acts, which are very heavy reading!

          I seem to recall some previous posts stating that it was illegal to do BUILDING works on a Sunday so it may be worth searching the form for that.

          The best way to find out for sure is ask your Local Authority or Environmental Health Department as I understand it's them that deal with those kind of breaches in regulations.

            Ahh that would make more sense must admit I would be surprised if this were the case however. There are certainly regulations on what time of night and morning works should go on to and commence, respectively.

              and I'm pretty certain those regs cover Sundays certainly, but not sure about Saturdays. Just don't know what the regulations are

              I suppose it also depends on what "building" works the Op wants to do ?

                I don't think so. But it's often a condition of planning permission that works in residential areas are not carried out at weekends, so (a) that might confuse people into thinking it's actually illegal and (b) if it was illegal per se, there would be no reason to insert this condition into planning permissions.

                That said, there might be local bye-laws to this effect in Lambeth, who knows? Furthemore, if you did undertake extensive, noisy, and prolonged works at a weekend to the objection of neighbours, it would be very likely that ultimately you'd get jumped on by the local environmental health dept.

                    Saturday 8/9 till 1pm - Sundays as far as i know "no works are to be carried out" however if a council wants to work - they can (strange huh) If your tenants want to complain about working on a Sunday to Environmental Health they will be unable to untill 6 or so PM as nobody will be on the switchboard by that time - the damage is done!
