Noise and Dust Compliance

IEC carries out quarterly routine noise and dust monitoring of infilling operations at Sandon Quarry. Noise monitoring results from a number of positions are compared with the noise limits stated within the site planning conditions.

Due to extraneous noise from the A12, close range measurements of site operations and subsequent noise modelling has been carried out to demonstrate that the site is operating within the site noise limits.

Dust Deposition and Soiling

Dust gauges are located at various stations around the site boundary in order to determine dust deposition and soiling.

Monitoring Reports

Advice on noise and dust mitigation measures is provided to the site operator in order to ensure appropriate limits are not exceeded.

Individual monitoring reports for noise and dust are prepared and submitted to the Local Planning Authority to demonstrate compliance with the relevant planning conditions.

    Earsham Quarry Extensions

    Planning permission was granted in September 2020 for three extension areas to Earsham Quarry totalling some 32 hectares.

    Independent Environmental Consultancy (IEC) carried out Noise & Air Quality Assessments as part of the Environmental Statement (ES). Monitoring was carried out at a number of locations to establish baseline conditions for noise and dust during 2019.

    Noise Surveys

    Noise predictions using CadnaA (Computer Aided Noise Abatement) modelling software were carried out at identified noise-sensitive receptor locations. A series of recommendations were included within a strategy to minimise potential noise emissions from the mineral workings during the lifetime of the proposed scheme. The outcome of the modelling demonstrated national Planning Practice Guidance (PPG) criterion would be met for routine and temporary site operations.

    Air Quality Assessments

    The Air Quality Assessment was carried out using the Institute of Air Quality Management (IAQM) Guidance on the Assessment of Mineral Dust Impacts for Planning. The significance of potential fugitive dust emission effects was concluded to be not significant, in accordance with the IAQM methodology.  Mitigation measures were detailed within a Dust Management Plan which was described by the Environmental Protection consultee for Norfolk County Council as “comprehensive”.
