Building site directly surrounding flat and blocking 4 windows

Hi There,
I wonder if anyone out there has any advice or can point me in the right direction. We have a lease on a ground floor former council flat. The council won a contentious application to build 2 new flats that will join onto our flat. We're at the stage now when we've appointed a party wall surveyor and the council has the building contractor in place. The council project team and site building contractor has presented plans for accessing the building site. It's a tricky site to access however the plans set out block off our kitchen window, bathroom window, bedroom 1 window and bedroom 2 window. .... For nearly a year. While some light could make it through, it would be dark. Also we have serious security concerns as the proposal creates a dead, enclosed space where the windows could be accessed unobserved.

I wonder what regulations/guidelines there might be ( if any) that the council or contractors would need to observe ......

Any advice very much appreciated ....
