Noise and Planning

The Environmental Protection Team gives advice to the Planning Department in relation to new developments.  Where this is likely to be noisy, planning conditions can be imposed to control potential noise and some developments can even be refused on noise grounds.

New sensitive developments such as housing or schools may be required to have improved noise insulation if they are planned to be built near to existing noisy sites.
