HC Deb 12 February 1973 vol 850 cc228-9W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what steps he is taking to ensure that the construction of the Taylors Lane generating station will comply with his approval condition that no houses in the vicinity will be subject to vibration and a noise level in excess of 50dBA.

Mr. Tom Boardman

The approval condition is that noise and vibration should be avoided as far as reasonably practicable and that noise should not exceed 50dBA at a distance of 100 metres or more. The Greater London Council which asked for this condition will no doubt inform me if any question of noncompliance arises.
