Expert Witness

Sustainable Acoustics provides a comprehensive range of expert witness services for licensing, nuisance and planning disputes. The availability of our experts in a diverse range of specialist disciplines enables the selection of the appropriate expert on a case-specific basis. 

Noise from the operation of licensed premises where they are close to residential areas can be problematic, and a balance needs to be struck. Sustainable Acoustics' expert witness service embraces the provision of expert evidence, objective reviews of a dispute’s merits and substance, and reports detailing a claim’s technical strengths and weaknesses.  Read about Anti-social Behaviour here.

Peter Rogers is an experienced technical expert in litigation, arbitration, adjudication and mediation, familiar with the pre-action protocol for construction and engineering disputes.  Colin English is experienced in Environmental noise, arbitration and mediation and is familiar with the pre-action protocol for construction and engineering disputes.  Whether considering having to deal with the protection of an existing late hours trading licence or seeking to extend hours, it is likely you will need to consider the noise impact on the surrounding residents. Whist common sense methods of minimising disturbance are important, such as notices, and social behaviour and litter patrols; more specialist assistance is sometimes necessary to gather expert advice in order to solve problems that are occurring, or to prevent, or to prove that an impact is not being caused. This is also a requirement of the licence and therefore to protect the business, a proactive approach is required to prevent noise causing a nuisance to more people.
