  • Building maintenance, including window cleaning, allowed with trigger nozzle hoses or pressure cleaners only
  • Hosing any hardstand area, eg driveway, is banned except for health and safety reasons or with pressure cleaners
  • Car washing is allowed providing, where practical, the runoff is onto a lawn and not down the drain
