Noise Impact Assessments in the Workplace
(The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005)

Projects might include:
- Industrial and commercial developments including delivery noise.
- Noise from plant located at industrial, retail or commercial sites.
- Restaurants and takeaways (A3 uses) with kitchen extract plant.
- Noise from patrons of night-clubs, restaurants and bars.
Noise Impact Assessments are often required in support of planning applications.
