The Site lies north of the M20 motorway where traffic noise is high, though as it is on embankment along the majority of this southern boundary, acoustic issues diminish quickly as you move away. The Site is also bisected by the Rochester to Ashford Railway line which generates noise from the passing of trains.

In addition, should the adoption and opening up of Bellingham Way occur, it would generate additional traffic. Although this new link road would offer transport benefits to the area, its noise impact will need to be considered in the redevelopment of the Site in any land use scenario.
