The residential areas around Regent’s Park form a private estate existing within an important London Conservation Area. All residents and their contractors carrying out work on properties on the estate must obey a number of guidelines set independently by the Crown Estate and the CEPC. If you have not worked on the estate before, please familiarise yourself with these guidelines and enquire if you are unsure about what is permitted.
If you wish to do any of the following activities you will need to advise the CEPC and seek a permit:
- park a trade vehicle or skip
- erect scaffolding or any other structure
- use a crane, hoist or cherry picker
- bring huts or other facilities on site
- heat asphalt or carry out other “hot works”
- open up the pavements or roadways
- bring on site any vehicle over 28 tonnes in weight
It is the responsibility of the resident or their contractor to make the arrangements to advise the CEPC or its appointed surveyor of proposed works and to seek the necessary permits or licences and to pay any associated charges.
The following restrictions on works must be complied with:
- no work before 8.00 am or after 5.00 pm on weekdays;
- no work after 1.00 pm on Saturdays;
- no work at any time on Sundays or on public holidays.
- no noisy works involving drills or compressors outside the hours between 10.00 am and 2.00 pm.
- Regent’s Park is closed to all trade and non-resident vehicles between midnight and 07.00 am.
- Access and exit into and out of the Park for vehicles with an unladen weight of more than half-tonne is to be agreed in advance by the CEPC acting in co-operation with the Metropolitan Police.
The estate is private land and the CEPC’s Inspector of Pavements has wide statutory powers to control works on the estate. If you do not have a permit or you are in breach of your permit’s conditions you may be ordered off the estate with immediate effect and your licence may be rescinded.
