Acoustic Surveys FAQs

Our team of experienced Acoustic Consultants can provide a comprehensive range of services, from baseline monitoring and predictive modelling to on-site verification and the design of mitigation solutions. By engaging us early, you can identify and address any noise or vibration issues, keeping your project on track and satisfying all regulatory requirements. 

Our Acoustic consultants provide the expertise needed to assess the noise and vibration impacts of a development, identify appropriate mitigation measures, and demonstrate compliance with the relevant standards. Their input is crucial throughout the planning, design, and construction phases. 

The UK has its own well-established framework of noise and vibration regulations, with standards like BS 4142 and Calculation of Noise from Road Traffic (CRTN) being widely used. While there are broad similarities with other countries, the specific limits, assessment methodologies, and enforcement mechanisms can vary significantly.

Within the UK, regulations vary slightly between countries, with different requirements in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland 

Failure to comply with noise and vibration regulations can result in planning permission being refused or delayed, as well as potential enforcement action by local authorities. Developers may also face challenges with obtaining environmental permits or face legal action from affected parties. 

Noise and vibration limits are established through a combination of national legislation, local planning policies, and industry-specific guidance. The specific standards applied will depend on factors like the type of development, the surrounding land uses, and the potential receptors affected. 

Key regulations and standards include the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), the Noise Policy Statement for England (NPSE), and guidance from bodies like the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Institute of Acoustics. These set out the requirements for assessing and mitigating noise and vibration impacts from new developments.
