Environmental Noise Surveys
Sound Advice Acoustics provides comprehensive Environmental Noise Surveys and Impact Assessments for a wide range of projects to help support planning applications.
The noise assessments undertaken vary greatly, from a single existing or proposed air conditioning plant to inner city residential developments and large out of town developments. This can also include the measurement, assessment and evaluation of noise pollution from rail, road, aircraft and more recently wind turbines.
Comprehensive and detailed noise surveys
All noise surveys are carried out to meet the latest standards and confirm the requirements set out by the local governing department, be it Environmental Health, Planning or Building Control.
We will provide a full technical report that analyses your proposed development, ensuring you will meet the necessary acoustic requirements. We can also recommend what level of sound insulation your development may require.
We will liaise with the local authority on your behalf and submit all acoustic reports required to help successfully resolve any environmental noise issues quickly, and that it satisfies all interested parties.

The Standards and Regulations
This standard is used to ensure that specific internal noise levels are achieved for either existing or proposed residential developments. The standard gives guidance to the maximum permitted internal levels that are to be achieved.
This standard is widely used throughout the country, all local and county councils regard this standard as an appropriate standard for assessing the impact of a potential noise complaint from industrial noise affecting existing or proposed residential premises. The standard has been designed with various penalties corrections that are to be applied to the specific noise levels associated with this assessment.
The NPPF has now been introduced to collaborate the above standards to ensure consistency through assessments for planning applications.
This standard relates to the procedure and methodology that should be adopted and implemented in order for a qualified acoustic engineer to carry out an accurate and traceable noise survey of an external environmental noise source.
