Environmental Noise Regulations:
Developments are often subject to stringent planning conditions, particularly in relation to noise. Under the Environmental Protection Agency Act 1992, local authorities may set particular noise-related requirements, usually with reference to international guidelines, standards or codes of practice. Such planning requirements can apply to the construction process, or to the finished development itself.
Through various consultancy services, iAcoustics can ensure strict adherence to such planning requirements. We can advise on best practical means so that noise does not become a nuisance i.e. “…so loud, so continuous, so repeated, of such duration or pitch or occurring at such times as to give reasonable cause for annoyance …” (EPA, 1992). We can ensure a project conforms to the relevant standards and guidelines, and provide evidence of such conformity.
