Noise and Vibration Assessment

Most planning applications for new development (whether noise-generating or noise-sensitive) will need to be supported by a "Noise and Vibration Assessment". The assessment needs to demonstrate how the project will deliver sustainable development, in line with national and local planning policy objectives.

For larger scale projects, Noise and Vibration may need to be more formally assessed as part of an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).

The key to success for any development is early engagement. This enables the noise "risk" of a site to be carefully assessed and for masterplans to be developed holistically, implementing "good acoustic design" principles.

Once we have assisted you in securing planning permission for your development, we can also offer detailed acoustic design advice to discharge any planning conditions, and provide detailed design input through to practical completion of the project.
