UK theatres to be protected by noise mitigation measures

18th March 2016

The Theatres Trust has been mentioned in ETNow.

Theatres have received a boost in their protection against noise complaints in a new planning law announced by the government.

The Theatres Trust welcomed changes to the Permitted Development Order (England) as developers now need to address noise impacts before undertaking an office to residential conversion near an existing theatre or live music venue.

The Theatres Trust said, “The Trust welcomes the changes to the Permitted Development Order to help protect the nation’s theatres. It provides an opportunity to engage with developers and ensure, in terms of potential noise impacts, that new housing can be delivered while protecting the viability of theatres and live performance venues.”

New planning law protects theatres against noise complaints

17th March 2016

The Theatres Trust has been mentioned in The Stage.

Theatres have received a boost in their protection against noise complaints in a new planning law announced by the government.

Equity and the Theatres Trust have both welcomed the legislation, which means property developers will now need to address any noise issues that could impact on new residents from existing nearby theatres and venues.

A spokeswoman for the Theatres Trust said the amended planning law would “help protect the nation’s theatres”.

She told The Stage: “These developments don’t need to apply for planning permission, so if they fail to include measures such as double glazing or sound insulation, any noise from neighbouring theatres could result in conflicts and complaints and affect the theatre’s viability.”

UK theatres to be protected by noise mitigation measures

17th March 2016

The Theatres Trust welcomes changes to the Permitted Development Order (England) as developers now need to address noise impacts before undertaking an office to residential conversion near an existing theatre or live music venue.

From 06 April 2016 local planning authorities will have to consider noise impacts on new residents from existing businesses, under an amended permitted development right that allows offices to be converted to residential use, without the need to obtain planning permission.

The amended Order means developers will now need to seek prior approval from the local planning authority that any noise mitigation measures proposed are suitable to ensure that nearby theatres are protected before a change of use from an office to residential building can be carried out.
