Planning & Noise Support | Cornwall

Noise Survey | Noise Impact Assessment | Acoustic Survey | Noise Test | Noise Assessment

Many residential or mixed use developments require a noise assessment to support the planning application. This ensures that adequate protection is provided for future residents by minimising noise impacts. 

All acoustic assessments or noise surveys include outline recommendations for glazing and ventilation to meet reasonable standards of internal noise, guided by BS 8233 and/or World Health Organisation guidelines, to meet the planning conditions.

Impact Acoustics and the local authority will liase together in order to provide specific guidance on the assessment of noise on sites proposed for residential development.

Noise impact assessments  / noise surveys / noise tests are normally requested by a Planning Officer or by the Local Authority due to concerns relating to construction of new residential dwellings (or change of use) in a high noise exposure area. New dwellings can be exposed to road traffic, rail, air or mechanical/commercial noise which is unacceptable.

Once planning permission has been gained for a scheme or project;  it is common for noise related planning conditions to be attached which require discharge prior to works commencing on-site. Impact Acoustics can guide you through the activities required to discharge such conditions which for residential development normally require demonstrating compliance with noise limits or mitigation measures including acoustical performance specifications for building elements including glazing. 


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.
