Noise assessments and reports for planning applications
We have published a guide to assist developers and their consultants in completing noise assessments and reports which meet the council's expectations. Noise mitigation schemes can often have a big impact on the appearance and design details of new development, and on some occasions noise may be a significant constraint to new development. With this in mind, where a noise impact on or from development can be anticipated, it should be understood as early as possible, and form part of the design and application process. See the guide below for more information.
