Environmental Noise Assessment

Typically the following may be required for a client developing their business and requiring noise to be controlled as a condition of planning.

  • Long-term and/or short-term noise monitoring of existing noise levels in the area. Quieter areas are more noise-sensitive to industrial development.
  • Prediction of noise levels based on measured noise levels and/or suppliers data We use computer noise models to predict future noise levels
  • Assessment of noise against relevant standards. Is the proposed noise likely to be at a level which may annoy someone, when compared to relevant guidance?
  • If necessary recommend cost effective noise reduction methods e.g. noise barriers, , silencers on extracts.
  • Document all of the above in a technical report which you can submit to your local planning authority.
