Noise impact assessment

This is required if you are applying to build a new residential development which is adjacent to either:

  • an A road
  • a railway
  • a motorway
  • an area which generates noise

You are also required to do a noise impact assessment if your project will have an industrial use or if the building will include air conditioning or extraction units.
