Noise is a leading cause of statutory nuisance complaints within the UK. Support your planning application with a bespoke Noise assessment for your development.

Our Services Include:

  • Industrial or Commercial Noise Survey (BS 4142): This survey is required if the proposed development would increase the noise levels into the surrounding area, particularly if the site is located close to residential properties. It also assesses the likely hood of future noise complaints and can provide mitigation advice to reduce this risk.

  • Noise at Work Survey: The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 came into effect on 6th April 2006 and regulates the level of noise workers can be safely exposed to before training and hearing protection must be provided by the employer.

  • Construction Site Noise Monitoring Surveys and Noise Management Plan: A construction noise monitoring survey and management plan can protect the site workers as well as nearby receptors. It will outline operational and training procedures to ensure noise levels are kept below acceptable levels, designated as part of the planning application and agreed upon by the local planning authority.

  • Residential Noise Survey (BS 8233): This survey/assessment is usually required when a new residential building is being developed with close proximity to potential sources of high noise levels such as motorways, train lines, airports, entertainment or industrial premises. The survey aims to quantify a baseline noise level for the immediate area, to predict potential impacts to future site users and to determine if additional noise mitigation measures would be required.

  • Other Specific Noise Assessments: Our consultants can offer bespoke noise assessments, catering to the specific requirements of your situation.
