Industrial Noise Impact Assessment | Cornwall

BS4142 | MPS2 |Noise Survey |Noise Impact Assessment

Existing or proposed industrial developments can have a significant noise impact on surrounding residential areas and a noise impact assessment or and industrial noise survey is normally required, either at the planning stage, or as a result of noise complaints. From small commercial air handling plants through to major international coal or gas fired power plants, impact acoustics have broad experience in the assessment of noise and vibration for the industrial, commercial and utilities sectors.


Impact Acoustics can offer a fully integrated service of noise measurement, mitigation and management for industrial and mineral extraction sites. This service is used typically as part of a wider Environmental Impact Assessment.

BS4142:2014 Noise impact assessments / noise surveys are normally requested by a Planning Officer or E.H.O (Environmental Health Officer) due to concerns of increased noise from proposed mechanical noise e.g. Fans, Air Conditioning Systems, Generators etc. applied for in a planning application to the local authority (Council). Impact Acoustics is experienced in liaising with the relevant planning or environmental control authority to ensure that your development has the smoothest  possible path to completion.

A full audit of the noisy operations likely to impact on neighboring noise sensitive premises is undertaken, with noise measurements taken where appropriate to ensure that our noise assessment conforms to the requirements set out by the Local Planning Authority, Mineral Planning Authority or any other relevant regulatory body. Mineral Planning Authorities typically specify that all mineral extraction noise assessments should be carried out in accordance with the guidance given in the Minerals Policy Statement 2 (MPS2).

Commercial developments which can include offices, retail, sports/leisure and distribution operations can have very different acoustical requirements. Where commercial activities are planned adjacent to noise sensitive receivers, appropriate mitigation measures need to be incorporated from the outset. Where commercial development is planned in an already noisy area, appropriate measures may need to be required to ensure that the acoustical climate required for the functioning of the development is achieved.


Whether your project is based in  saint austell, camborne-redruth,  truro,  penzance,  newquay, falmouth,  saltash  or any other location within Cornwall; we are happy to help.
