Noise Feasibility Study Proposed Residential Development 10 Wayne Avenue & 190-194 Pinebush Road
9 January 2023
In accordance with the MECP guidelines, noise warning clauses are recommended to inform the future residents of potential traffic noise excesses and the presence of the existing commercial/industrial facilities in the area of the subject site. [...] They are based on the predicted future sound levels at the building facades, and the areas of the facade components (walls, windows and doors) relative to the floor area of the adjacent room. [...] The presence of the neighbouring industries and commercial facilities should also be addressed through the implementation of a noise warning clause in the offers of purchase and sale and tenancy agreements for the residential units in the development. [...] Warning clauses should be included in the property and tenancy agreements and offers of purchase and sale for all the buildings to inform the future owners/occupants of the noise issues and the presence of the roadways. [...] A noise warning clause should be included in the property and tenancy agreements and offers of purchase and sale for the dwelling units to inform the future owners/occupants of the noise issues and the presence of the existing light industrial facilities and commercial uses, and that sounds from these facilities may at times be audible during periods of low background sound.
