Now a new application seeks to vary condition no.13 of that permission, to make reference to an updated Noise Impact Assessment (NIA).
In a report to Preston City Council Planning Committee, the Director of Development and Housing says: “The submitted NIA under the 2019 application included mitigation measures relating to the originally proposed ground floor commercial units, which are no longer required, as these units were deleted from the scheme.
“The applicant has subsequently submitted an updated NIA to better reflect the development proposed, that being wholly residential, and seeks to vary condition no.13 to make reference to the updated NIA.”

The Environmental Health Officer agrees with the change, however recommends a condition requiring the rating level for noise from all plant and machinery associated with the development to not exceed 10 decibels below the background noise level at the nearest noise sensitive premises.
The application (06/2021/1536) will be discussed at Planning Committee on Thursday 3 February. The report recommending approval can be viewed on the Preston City Council website.
