Loss of amenity is relevant to whether planning permission should be granted. The National Planning Guidance says clearly that construction noise is a relevant factor as to whether planning permission is granted.

Residents objecting to planning applications are routinely told that noise and nuisance cannot be considered in the decision-making process. This is incorrect.We suggest that the Council applies its own policies and follows the national guidance.
