Environmental Noise & Vibration

Noise is any unwanted sound and when it reaches certain levels and intensities it can become annoying, leading to stress and possible physical and psychological health problems.

A nuisance is an adverse impact on a person's ability to enjoy their amenity, either within or outside their residence.

Obviously nuisance noise is based upon the ambient noise climate. For instance a new noise source in a busy city centre may not be as intrusive of one introduced to a rural community. Also each individuals perception of nuisance will be different. The government, British Standards Institution and the World Health Organisation have created documents to assist consultancies determine the magnitude of disturbance experienced and assist us to make recommendations in order to abate the noise problem.

In some circumstances where the local authority finds a particular company or individual is creating a noise problem, this can be deemed as a statutory nuisance. A statutory nuisance is where a particular nuisance has been determined as such by statute, such as the Environment Protection Act 1990. Then there is public nuisance and private nuisance which are within Common Law.

Ethos can assist in assessing, preventing and remediating your environmental noise problems.
