Noise Impact Assessments | Planning Stage Acoustics Reports
Proposed new industrial or commercial developments can have a potential adverse noise impact on the surrounding area. Consequently, relevant authorities including local councils and the EPA require detailed information regarding the noise impact of the developments that may generate significant environmental noise. Such developments include industrial facilities, large commercial or residential complexes with rooftop plants as well as bars and music venues. Resonate have conducted noise impact assessments required for developments to successfully obtain planning approval.
