Planning Support for Noise Issues | Wiltshire

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

Many residential or mixed use developments throughout Wiltshire will require a noise assessment to support the planning application. 

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

Noise impact assessments  / noise surveys / noise tests in Wiltshire  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 throughout Wiltshire.


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

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 in Wiltshire. Impact Acoustics are able to 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 Swindon, Salisbury, Trowbridge, Chippenham, Warminster, Corsham, Devizes or any other location within Wiltshire; we are happy to help.
