Air Source Heat Pumps Noise & Permitted Development reports published by Welsh Government, which make recommendations for how to make sure noise is not a barrier for residents

Sustainable Acoustics have collaborated with Apex Acoustics to complete an extensive piece of work, which yesterday was published by Welsh Government, and can be found here.


The Minister for Climate Change, Julie James MS said "We wish to encourage residents to transition from fossil fuel heating to low carbon alternatives, but without creating noise nuisance. Therefore, we commissioned acoustics experts to investigate this distance rationale, to obtain and review related evidence, and to recommend whether the PDRs should be changed".




Phase 1 report deals with the evidence supporting noise being one of the biggest factors constraining deployment in Wales.


The Phase 2 report identified key findings from the work, recommending that the 3m rule shoudl be removed as one of the big ones.
