We the undersigned petition Westminster City Council to Change/adopt new rules around limiting construction and works being performed in a certain area or radius at any give time. More details

More details from petition creator

I live and work in Mayfair, in the radius of that small area in central London I have counted 25 separate work sites not including the cross-rail works being achieved around Bond street. On Grosvenor Square alone, there are 6 construction sites and they are all full demolition and rebuild which will last for the fore sable future.

I just ask that some common sense be applied to distributing these permits, I am forced on a daily basis to endure noise pollution and particle pollution to the higher degree which could be counteracted by a common-sense approach of controlling the amount of work sites at once to limit it. I have lived here for 5 years and its always been as construction heavy, so this is not temporary.

Nobody cares about this as we (Westminster residents) are considered as privileged residents and that on a more general basis Mayfair is treated as a tourist and office area where nobody lives but id like this to change to call to the planning commission to consider the health of its Westminster residents they are supposed to support not to support how much money these sites will bring to the council.

I will gladly support this view in front of any public servant or meeting.
