The Noise Impact Assessment took account of all local noise sources, including how rail traffic, road traffic and industrial yards would affect the proposed housing development.
It was concluded that, subject to the implementations of noise control measures established through the assessment, there was no reason why noise should present any impediment to the grant of planning permission for this development. Noise control measures included noise control barriers.
The development was recommended for approval by the Council, but councillors turned down the initial application. The development is now the subject of a planning appeal.
