Transport & Industrial Noise Monitoring
Transport noise is the number one source of noise, affecting more people around the world than any other source. As more and more people use transport, whether it’s for commuting to work, holiday or recreation, the use of road, rail and aircraft transport is set to increase. As a result, the potential significant impacts or noise and vibration from transport sources are also likely to increase.
Phlorum is able to provide assessments to compare and provide advice on different transport scheme options/layouts, which can include assessing possible mitigation measures and the production of graphical noise maps. These reports can be provided in compliance with the Environmental Design Manual for Road and Bridges (DMRB) and for Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA).
The noise generated by industrial and commercial industries can impact on other noise sensitive receptors including nearby residential properties.
Phlorum can undertake the modelling and assessments to determine if an actual problem exits from the industrial/commercial premises. Then we can carry out detailed assessment to examine the source, and review potential options to mitigate the noise.
New development will often require a noise chapter for an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), and may also require noise assessment for an Environmental Permit.
