Noise Assessments for planning applications
Nowadays, noise assessments are often required for planning applications, especially in urban environments where road, rail, industrial and other environmental noise / vibration sources are prevalent. It may be that you have been requested by your local environmental health officer that such a noise assessment be undertaken as part of the planning application. Often there are certain British Standards and guidance documents that the noise assessment may include:
- PPG 24: Planning and Noise
- BS 8233: Sound insulation and noise reduction for buildings
- BS 4142: Rating industrial noise affecting mixed residential and industrial areas
- BS 6472: Guide to evaluation of human exposure to vibration in buildings
