The Guidance on reducing dust and emissions from construction sites will be published as Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPGs) to the London Plan, along side a package of SPGs that are due for publication this year. The Guidance will be published towards the end of 2012, following a twelve week consultation period. We have been actively working with the construction industry, London boroughs and London Councils to produce the Guidance.
