Noise Impact Assessment

Do you require a noise impact report, if so then please contact Southwest Environmental for a quotation.

During construction their will normally be an increase in noise, which can impact on neighbors.

Some developments will have a negative noise impact, as they may replace older developments with a higher noise footprint one example of this might be the redevelopment of a dockyard to seafront residential apartments.

In most cases there will be an positive noise impact, new roads, wind farms and industrial centers will all generally create more noise than the previous site use.

Noise is considered as a form of pollution and as such any "noise" component of an environmental impact assessment will include:

- Baseline studies
noise impact assessment

- Impact Prediction

- Mitigation

- Monitoring

Picking up on one of the above point. Mitigation.

Mitigation of noise can be accomplished in an umber of ways, one such way is to control the noise at source, this might include fitting larger silencers to motorised plant, or the specialize detuning, of outlets etc.

Noise Impact Modeling

noise_impact_modelling Noise Impact Modeling is is a a critical part of the noise impact assessment process.

Noise impact baseline studies must be prepared, but then it is necessary to derive a post development figure for noise at a particular location.

The sound level must be considered along with barriers, that may attenuate sounds on its path to the receptpr.

Receptors for noise can be humans, and natural. Amenity areas should therefore be considered that offer a degree of tranquility.

Dependent on the level of detail required within the model noise modeling can be a relatively simple, or extremely complex affair.
