Project Title: Planning Stage Noise Impact Assessments for the Sports Facility

Project Value: £10m+

Project Brief:  We worked alongside REAL Consulting and Suffolk District Council to to support the redevelopment of sports facilities and pitches including an athletics track, football pitch, MUGA, indoor sport courts, cricket square, car parking and more.

For this particular project, our services were required to support the project through the planning process. Working together, we outlined the project’s requirements by defining the acoustic objectives. We carried out onsite noise and vibration surveys, establishing the sustainability and regulatory criteria. We then advised on the fundamental principles of site and layout to minimise acoustic conflicts, pre-empting any problems that could potentially arise later. Following this, we provided an  guidance on noise generating aspects of the development to enable the local planning criteria to be achieved.
