Noise Nuisance Assessments

At Noisedirect our team of Environmental Health Practitioners have assessed thousands of cases of statutory noise nuisance and ASB. Almost all of our Environmental Health Practitioners have worked for local Council environmental health departments. In their role as Council officers, Environmental Health Practitioners are rarely required by Councils or the Courts to use Acoustic Monitoring equipment to assess statutory nuisance. The reason for this is very simple. There is no set level at which noise becomes a nuisance. There is no British Standard or International Standard, which noise must definitively meet, for it to be a nuisance or not.

So how do you decide if a noise amounts to a statutory nuisance? Luckily at Noisedirect our experienced Environmental Health Practitioners have the knowledge and experience to subjectively assess if a noise is a nuisance, by objectively considering a number of factors; including the location, duration and frequency along with other criteria to conclude whether a noise is; or is likely to amount to a nuisance.

Prices for Noise Nuisance Assessments are based on commissioning information and can be as little as £450 (plus VAT). Noise Nuisance Assessments prices will vary depending on when the proposed assessment will be undertaken (daytime, night time, weekday, weekend or Bank Holiday) the duration of visit and complexity of report required (witness statement or more complex Expert Report to comply with Civil and Criminal Procedure Rules).
