Airthrey Green Mixed Use Development - CSP Acoustics

Airthrey Green, Bridge of Allan, Near Stirling, Mixed Use Development

A Noise Impact Assessment was completed by CSP Acoustics on behalf of Graham’s Family Dairies and MacTaggart & Mickel to support a new mixed use development at Airthrey Green, Bridge of Allan, near Stirling. The proposal included 600 residential units, of which a proportion would be affordable housing; commercial space at a neighbourhood centre and a new primary school.

Project Overview

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.

Early Decisions Make a Difference

It is a fact that the impact of many acoustical issues can be reduced by making appropriate early stage design decisions – site layout, building planning, materials and structures choices can all affect the magnitude and therefore cost of dealing with noise, privacy and communication issues. To help designers become more aware of the impact of acoustics on design and development CSP Acoustics is happy to provide CPD Updates on Acoustics and Noise issues to design practices and client organisations. Lunchtime, or longer, CPD sessions can be arranged for delivery in-house to suit client and design organisations.
