Lioncourt Homes, Telford
NoiseAir was recently appointed by Lioncourt Homes to carry out a noise impact assessment in support of a planning application in Telford, Shropshire. The client was seeking planning permission to redevelop the site in question into 94 new dwellings. The proposed dwellings comprised a mixture of detached, semi-detached and terraced houses of two, three and four bedroom properties.
The primary concern at the site was the road traffic noise originating from the nearby A4640 and to a lesser extent, Gatcombe Way. Traffic noise has the potential to create adverse impact to future residents living on the site.
The noise impact assessment took into consideration noise sensitive areas of the proposed development i.e. proposed residential areas / bedrooms as well as outdoor space.
In accordance with NoiseAir’s standard procedure, our consultants liaised with the Local Authority regarding the planning application in order to address any potential noise problems, and therefore increase the likelihood of a successful outcome. Subsequently, our technical report provided a detailed sound insulation scheme to ensure that future residents would not be exposed to unacceptable noise levels. Lioncourt Homes then went on to successfully obtain planning permission for the development.
