The design of each city inextricably influences the pattern of noise pollution across the globe. Many aspects of urban planning can significantly affect vehicular distribution, traffic conditions, and the volume of traffic. Lagos State, in particular, is afflicted by some of these factors. Numerous studies have established the significance of noise control strategies in this context. This paper focused on precautionary noise control strategies incorporated at the design stage, which are an integral part of a sustainable urban planning approach. Data were collected via a structured questionnaire from a sample consisting of 96 designers and 67 users of mixed-use buildings in Lagos state; as these building types promote sustainability in building design. This research utilized the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) to analyze data. The results reveal which noise control strategies have been adopted and implemented in sustainable building designs and as a result, its users are not affected by external noise sources. The study’s findings had a positive impact on the implementation of sustainable urban planning strategies that incorporate precautionary noise control strategies.
