Industrial Noise, Noise Survey (s) & Noise Impact Assessment (s) In Norfolk BS4142:2014
(Norwich, King's Lynn, Downham Market, Dereham, Cromer, Great Yarmouth and beyond!)

Dynamic Response understands that the relationship between industrial and commercial noise generating sources in Norfolk, and nearby surrounding noise receptors is very important. When considering industrial/commercial developments, it is necessary to assess the resultant noise levels emanating from internally generated activities, but also externally sited installations, in order to minimise noise related complaints which over time could develop into statutory noise nuisance cases to be investigated by Local Authorities.


When we consider industrial/commercial noise sources one of the main British Standards used by Norfolk Local Authorities is British Standard 4142 or BS 4142: 2014 'Methods for rating and assessing industrial and commercial sound' (BS4142:2014).

BS 4142 provides a methodology which compares the generated noise against the existing background noise LA90 in order to determine the likelihood of complaints in terms of adverse impact. British Standard 4142:2014 states that if the rated noise level exceeds the LA90 background noise level by around +10 dB or more, then it is likely that the resultant noise may have a significant adverse impact, a difference of around +5 dB over the background noise level is likely to have an adverse impact, and where the rating level does not exceed the background noise level, it is an indication that the resultant noise is likely to have a low adverse impact.

If a new industrial development is proposed, the existing operating hours of industrial/commercial premises are changed or extended, or new external plant equipment is installed etc, planning permission is likely to be required.

We can complete a noise survey and noise assessment to the relevant standards such as BS 4142: 2014 'Methods for rating and assessing industrial and commercial sound' (BS4142:2014), or in line with Norfolk Local Authority assessment criteria/requirements. If for some reason the results of the noise survey and noise assessment indicates that there is or would be a problem regarding noise, we will aim to provide noise mitigation advice to demonstrate to a Local Authority that the development should not cause any noise nuisance.

Some examples of fixed plant industrial noise assessments include:

• Air conditioning units or external heat pumps
• Water coolers or chiller units
• Extraction systems
• Air compressors
• External storage silo’s with associated pumps and
• Ventilation or extraction systems etc

In addition to the above it must not be forgotten that industrial noise can also cause noise nuisance due to noise break-out from the existing building envelope as well as externally mounted equipment. In these cases it is vital to determine the internally generated noise levels within an area and hence control the noise break-out based on detailed calculations to include the correctly specified building elements such as any external walls, ceiling/roof constructions, access doors and glazing etc.

Some examples of noise break-out assessments include:

• Joinery shops
• Food and drink manufacturers
• Automotive garages
• Product manufacturing premises
• Restaurants
• Scrap yards or recycling premises
• And various others not seen above

We aim to carry out all types of industrial / commercial noise assessments in Norfolk. Whatever your requirements are relating to industrial noise, please do not hesitate to contact us.
