Helping to minimise the impact of construction

We have produced interim guidance for developers and residents on Construction Management Plans (CMPs) during the Covid-19 situation. Find out more here.

Sometimes we require developers and contractors to prepare a Construction Management Plan (CMP) to help minimise the impact of construction. 

Steps to submitting a CMP:

You must account for timescales of CMPs in construction programmes and contracts.

  1. consult with the local community around a site before submitting a draft CMP (takes at least 2 weeks): community liaison guidance (PDF)
  2. read the Camden Minimum Requirements (PDF)
  3. read the Guide for Contractors Working in Camden
  4. prepare your CMP: Construction Management Plan (CMP) pro-forma (Word)
  5. statement and Checklist for: Cumulative Impact Areas in Cental London
  6. submit CMP to: (can take 3 months or more to approve, depending on the nature of proposal and the amount of revision required)


Cumulative Impact Areas – Camden Central London

Officers across several disciplines in the Council have developed a list of enhanced requirements they believe are necessary to mitigate the additional impacts brought about when several sites commence work in close proximity to one another. We propose that it is reasonable to increase what we ask of developers (and their contractors) in such areas, whether by way of increased environmental standards, improved communication liaison requirements, the conduct of site operatives or hours of construction.

All sites in the CIA area with a CMP requirement are to complete the CIA Checklist and circulate as an appendix to the CMP – a CMP submission will not be accepted until evidence of this has been supplied.
