Hirers take clean air battle to GLA


PLANT hirers are to take their battle with London clean air body Partnership Reducing Emissions from Construction Sites to the Greater London Assembly and Association of Local Government next week.

Frustrated with Precis' lack of response to its concerns about the cost and timescale of fitting diesel particulate filters, the Construction Plant-hire Association has secured a meeting with senior policy advisers from the GLA and ALG.

CPA chief executive Colin Wood said: 'We have had little or no response to our detailed and urgent questions to Precis, so we have had no option but to take them to a more senior level ? the people who inf luence the likes of Precis.' The CPA has told Precis that it will advise its hire members not to tender for high-profile jobs such as the Olympics if its concerns about assuming the cost of fitting filters are not met.
