Stansted Environmental Services can provide you with Acoustics and Noise Assessments in Essex and the surrounding areas for your site.
Our Acoustic Consultants are Members of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA), and can undertake Environmental Noise Assessments for Planning purposes.
SES can assist in every stage of a planning application, ranging from pre-application meetings with the client and the Local Authority through to provision of Technical Reports.
Noise measurements are taken using UKAS calibrated Sound level meters over a 24 hour period, however a shortened assessment can be carried out if agreed with the Local Authority.
Our reports clearly demonstrate measured sound levels experienced at the development site which are then compared against British Standards (BS 8233, BS5228 etc), World Health Organisation Standards and the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) to determine acceptability of the measured noise levels.
Where mitigation measure are required to reduce noise to an acceptable level these are discussed and agreed with the Design Team, and then incorporated into the report.
For help with all environmental noise issues then please contact one of our acousticians.
