Siting of Synthetic Grass Pitches

In light of concerns expressed around planning proposals for synthetic grass pitches (SGPs); with these often focussed on noise and lighting; this guidance note considers both elements; it provides further information on lighting and the type and amount of noise generated by use of SGPs; it suggests methods of mitigating impacts on neighbours; and outlines a recommended planning application approach where a Noise Impact Assessment (NIA) is required, and where floodlighting is to be addressed. This is intended to assist Clubs and other groups who may be looking to develop an SGP.
