Noise Impact Assessment
Environmental Noise & BS 4142
Noise Impact Assessment are required when new equipment or developments fall under the scope of BS4142. This could be small devices such as AC systems, or large premises.
BS4142 & Planning
To comply with this standard, BS4142 requires a noise impact assessment. This defines the impact due to the equipment or development on the local environment.
During the planning application process, local authorities will request a noise impact assessment report to discharge any concerns relating to noise. This provides confidence that no adverse acoustic impact will be caused by the proposed equipment or development. In some cases, an environmental impact assessment will provide an early indication of a negative effect – allowing for the installation of corrective measures.
The first step is to complete a noise survey. This helps us to understand the existing background sound level in the area. Once complete, we can assess the impact of the proposed noise source.
