Planning and Environmental Noise

The impact of environmental noise is a major consideration for developers, planning authorities, and residents, as the impact can prevent the site from being suitable. Delays can be avoided in the planning process if noise issues are addressed early with good acoustic design. High-value soundscapes can be designed to enhance schemes and provide green designs that will work for people and so be truly sustainable. 


On many sites, noise pollution can be a challenging obstacle from construction through to planning approval, design and delivery. Careful use of mitigation measures and layouts of the site and good acoustic design can deliver workable solutions from the master-planning stage in very challenging noise environments.
