Residential Development Noise Surveys

Noise Surveys for Residential Developments

Residential Developments

Has the Local Planning Authority asked you to submit a noise assessment with your planning application? We have many years of experience in helping clients through the noise aspects of the planning process.

New build or material change of use residential developments near transportation sources (road, rail, aircraft), industrial premises or entertainment venues is likely to trigger the requirement for a Noise Impact Assessment.

The assessment typically requires a noise survey to quantify the baseline noise climate at the proposed site and surrounding area.  With this site-specific information, the potential noise impact on the future occupants of the dwellings at the development site can be assessed.  Noise levels must be controlled to an acceptable level, both internally and externally, to provide comfortable living conditions and avoid sleep disturbance.

New Build Developments

New residential development may also need to be considered in terms of noise impact on existing residents and sensitive premises in the area.

You may already have been granted planning consent but planning conditions have been imposed related to noise. We are very experienced at providing the appropriate information to ensure there are no problems in getting the conditions discharged and ensuring there are no costly delays.

In response to our instruction we will provide a technical report fully considering  your proposed development, ensuring you will meet the necessary acoustic requirements. Residential noise survey reports include advice on the layout and orientation of the proposed dwellings, acoustic screening and a detailed sound insulation scheme for the dwellings (including facade, roof, glazing and ventilation specifications).
