We always tailor our acoustic advice to the specifics of each site. Our primary objectives are always:
  • We aim to achieve a successful outcome for all parties, even where specific information and guidance for the situation may be sparse
  • Remove any potential for future complex and expensive noise and vibration control measures being needed
  • Achieve the most effective balance between a reasonable environment and the needs of the development

Meeting acoustic requirements

Most development sites in the UK need noise and vibration control. These controls can range from construction working hour time limits to complex, high-performance sound insulation.

Meeting the acoustic requirements for local planning authorities can be time-consuming and difficult due to the high number of technical factors to consider, as well as potentially serving to increase risk and costs for developers.  

From common issues like traffic noise to site-specific noise, Adnitt Acoustics delivers a wide range of planning related services to help you through the planning application process. These include:

  • Providing technical reviews for a feasibility assessment of land purchases and development proposals
  • Attending pre-application scoping meetings with the Local Planning Authority
  • Conducting the necessary Environmental Impact Assessments of noise and vibration for basic planning compliance/individual planning conditions
  • Undertaking a demolition/construction noise and vibration assessment
  • Providing a construction noise management plan
  • Producing the required expert reports for submission to the LPA Liaising and negotiating with Council Officers on the acoustic aspects of a development plan
  • Providing expert representation at planning appeal hearings and/or change of use applications.
