This landmark Guidance complements the UK Government’s National Planning Policy Framework and Guidance to provide practitioners with an industry-recommended approach for the first time for new residential developments both internally and externally. It advocates full consideration of the acoustic environment through state of the art design principles from the earliest possible stages of the design and development control processes.
