Noise and planning
When making a planning application, it is important to consider any potential noise problems associated with the proposal.
If you are planning a potentially noisy development near to noise sensitive buildings, such as homes or schools, then you may need to carry out a noise assessment as part of your application. Similarly, if you are proposing a noise sensitive development near to an existing source of noise, this will also need to be assessed.
