Section 61 Consents Lessons Learned


The Noise and Vibration Guidance Note CoPA 1974 Section 61 Consent Applications and the Model Conditions were developed in consultation with the local authorities and were based upon similar arrangements made between local authorities and other major projects such as CTRL (HS1) and the Thameslink programme. A lessons learned review has been undertaken with local authorities, contractors and the client organisations (Crossrail Limited, Network Rail and London Underground) on the Section 61 process applied to Crossrail works with the objective of identifying any recommendations for implementation by future projects and programmes. This paper captures the comments made at the meetings and recommendations for improvement to the guidance note and model conditions, as well as lessons learned in their application.
