NoiseAir were out on site recently carrying out a noise assessment in support of a planning application near Oxford. The client is intending to convert an existing barn into a residential dwelling. Although the area is predominantly rural, there is a busy railway line adjacent to the land. Oxford City Council has raised concerns that noise and vibration from passing trains could have a detrimental impact on future occupants of the barn conversion. As such, a noise impact assessment was requested as part of the application.
Our acoustic consultants have extensive experience with noise and vibration assessments for planning applications. We have worked on several projects in Oxfordshire and work closely with Oxford City Council to overcome any noise or vibration related issues that may impact on the development.
The data collected from the acoustic survey allowed our consultants to calculate what specification of sound insulation is needed on the project in order to satisfy the local council requirements and meet the industry standards and guidelines.
Are you a developer planning a residential project? Acoustics and noise impact should be considered at the early planning stages to ensure your project meets the relevant standards. Later remedial work can be costly and is easily avoidable!
