Sustainable acoustics and vibration advice to support planning applications, consultation with authorities, management of conditions and BS4142.

The planning and regulatory framework often requires noise to be addressed before consent for a project is granted. Through many years of experience we have gained a comprehensive understanding of requirements and have developed effective relationships with numerous local authorities.

Planning conditions can come in all shapes and sizes. However, what doesn’t change is our ability to resolve them. We know that projects evolve and timelines change. We are able to respond proactively to meet deadlines and help keep your project on track. None of our projects have yet been refused planning on noise grounds.

How we do it

We put a focus on communicating with all relevant parties including the local planning authority, ensuring no stone is left unturned when it comes to getting your project through the planning process.

Understanding the situation

Whatever the planning requirement is, be it a building design issue or noise breakout, we will liaise with you and the relevant authority to establish the exact requirements before any work is carried out.

Acoustic surveys for planning

Many planning requirements such as BS4142 require noise risk assessments or acoustic testing to demonstrate compliance. At Anderson Acoustics we are an accepted testing body, accredited by UKAS and acknowledged by all planning authorities.
