Environmental Noise, Noise Survey (s) & Noise Impact Assessment (s) In Norfolk
(Norwich, King's Lynn, Downham Market, Dereham, Cromer, Great Yarmouth and beyond!)

Dynamic Response are able to provide a range of noise surveys and noise assessments in relation to environmental noise in Norfolk. The term environmental noise is quite a broad category which can include most external noise phenomena including transportation noise, industrial noise, noise from entertainment premises, noise from leisure activities, wind farms and a whole range of other noise.


When we refer to noise it is not uncommon to hear the terms continuous or impulsive used as a descriptor. Continuous noise is as the term suggests, a noise which is occurring non stop or continuously for a given duration (time). Sometimes people describe a continuous noise as a droning type noise. Impulsive noise on the other hand can be likened to a one off event or sudden fluctuation of noise over a given timeline or duration for example a single gun shot.

Various British Standards, World Health Organisation guidelines and other publications detail magnitudes of noise and general noise standards which should be achieved or complied with regarding environmental noise. If noise is not considered the effect of noise during both daytime and night-time periods can range from noise nuisance leading to noise complaints / statutory noise nuisance proceedings, to side effects such as elevated stress or sleep deprivation etc. This reinforces the need for noise to be monitored, and if required controlled or mitigated accordingly.

All of our Kent environmental noise surveys are undertaken using fully calibrated sound level meters which comply with the requirements of the relevant standards or guidance to be considered. From environmental noise surveys to noise control / noise mitigation, we aim to assist you with any noise issue that you may have.

On a larger scale, from a business wanting to implement a new piece of equipment or relocate premises, to road developments leading to increased traffic flow etc, we aim to predict / calculate what the theoretical noise impact on the surrounding area will be. By performing a survey on site at a set distance from a noise generating source, or using manufacturer provided data etc., it is possible to calculate what the noise impact will be at a given distance away from a noise source.

Often when we refer to a noise assessment it involves not only the measurement or prediction of the noise itself, but also an assessment of this noise against the existing background noise level e.g. the LA90, in order to assess the likelihood of complaints. An example of this could be the introduction of a wind turbine near noise sensitive receptors where the noise produced from the turbine must result in a level of say -10 dB below the existing background level. Therefore using this example, if the existing background noise level at noise sensitive receptors was measured at say 50 dB, then noise from the wind turbine should be controlled to be no more than 40 dB at the noise sensitive receptors in order to comply.

We aim to carry out all types of environmental noise surveys and noise assessments in Norfolk including:

• General environmental noise surveys
• Environmental impact assessments
• Change of use and new proposal feasibility studies
• Noise from outdoor venues e.g. go-carting and quad bike tracks etc
• World Health Organisation (WHO) guideline criteria compliance and more

From noise complaints to noise assessments supporting planning applications, whatever your requirements are relating to environmental noise, please do not hesitate to contact us.
