Experience shows that the maintenance of good public relations with your neighbours is particularly effective at minimising problems, especially where the project is large or lengthy or where there are very intrusive short term operations.

A good public relations service might include a letter delivered to your neighbours detailing the works and giving the name and telephone number of the site agent.

Other measures would include warning your neighbours of abnormal activities such as plant movement to and from the site and dealing promptly with any complaints received on site.
