Planning Noise

NSR 1_2When submitting any new development for planning permission it’s likely that a Planning Noise Assessment will be a requirement to assess the noise impact of the proposed development, for this you will need an Acoustic Consultant.

Dragonfly Consulting can help with your residential project whether it’s a single residential dwelling (house/flat) or a development of a hundred properties. We’ve also been involved in the redevelopment and refurbishment of a significant number of listed buildings. These buildings pose unique challenges, which we’ve always met successfully.

We can undertake detailed noise measurements to assess the suitability of the project and suggest mitigation measures (where applicable) whilst planning your build.  We work within the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and can apply site-specific guidance requested by the Local Authority.

We’ve considerable expertise with conducting Planning Noise Assessments on commercial developments (including bars, restaurants, pubs, nightclubs, leisure facilities, retail outlets and offices) and industrial projects (including warehouses, factories and power stations).

In addition to environmental noise issues, and to reduce the effects of them at the planning stage, we can assist with the design of the building interior and exterior to meet your specific acoustic requirements and those of the Local Authority.
