Professional Practice Guidance on planning and noise: New Residential Development

ProPG: Planning & Noise – a joint initiative from the ANC, IOA and CIEH

The ProPG has been produced to provide practitioners with guidance on a recommended approach to the management of noise within the planning system in England. The CIEH, IOA and the ANC have worked together to produce the guidance which encourages better acoustic design for new residential development and aims to protect people from the harmful effects of noise.

The guide is available in three pdf files:

ProPG: Planning & Noise – New Residential Development:

1.       Main Guidance

2.       Supplementary Document 1: Planning and noise policy and guidance

3.       Supplementary Document 2: Good Acoustic Design

This Professional Practice Guidance is based on the best knowledge available at the time of publication. It does not constitute an official government code of practice and neither replaces nor provides an authoritative interpretation of the law or government policy on which users should take their own advice as appropriate.
