Noise impact assessment

When is a Noise Impact Assessment required?

Applications proposals that raise issues of disturbance or are considered to be a noise sensitive development should be supported by a noise impact assessment prepared by a suitably qualified acoustician. Development that may require a noise impact assessment could include recreation/entertainment uses and new industrial processes.

Further Guidance

Further guidance is provided in Planning Policy Guidance Note 24:Planning and Noise (September 1994).
