The AVO Guide includes:
The AVO Guide is intended for the consideration of new residential development that will be exposed predominantly to airborne sound from transport sources, and to sound from mechanical services that are serving the dwellings in question. Although the policy coverage is limited to England, the approach may be applicable in other parts of the UK.
The AVO Guide is intended to contribute to the practice of good acoustic design, as emphasised in the Professional Practice Guidance on Planning and Noise (ProPG). In particular, the AVO Guide is intended to provide a practical method to address the requirements set out in paragraphs 2.34, 2.36 and 2.38 of the ProPG.
This consultation seeks views from potential users of the AVO Guide. The survey can be accessed here and questions are structured to follow the order that issues arise in the document so you will need to have a copy in front of you when completing the survey. The consultation runs until 11 May 2018.
