Noise assessments and reports for planning applications

The below technical guidance note on noise assessments is issued to assist developers, agents, and their consultants where noise could have an impact and is a consideration for any proposed development. This could be where noise would be caused by the proposed development, or the proposed development would be exposed to existing noise sources.

It will help consultants, agents and their clients understand how council officers will test and judge any noise assessment report submitted in support of an application, and when such assessments will be required. If the advice is followed, it should avoid situations which cause decisions on applications to be delayed or refused, because inadequate information has been provided in support of a proposal.

The advice contained in the Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council Guidance Note for Developers and Consultants on Noise Assessments and Reports for Planning Applications should be followed to ensure good acoustic design of the development to prevent and minimise disturbance from noise as required by s10.22 of the Design and Sustainability SPD.
