This event, produced by the London Authorities Noise Action Forum (LANAF) and the London Pollution Study Group, will explore the impact of construction and operation on noise pollution levels. Join us as we discuss whether the Control of Pollution Act (CoPA) can withstand being tested by major projects, exemplified by a specific case-study from Buckinghamshire council on CoPA S60 and S61. We will also discuss the opportunities and weaknesses associated with the application of CoPA to major projects such as HS2.
Construction processes and operations can produce significant noise and multiple noise mitigation measures are unlikely to fully offset all noise generated. This can negatively affect the quality of life for local residents and cause concern for local authorities.
This session will assess good acoustic design processes, examine what to include in statements and use practical examples of Good Acoustic Design elements. Hear from representatives of Hodkinson Consultancy on acoustic requirements and learn how to create overheating assessments to complement the noise impact assessment.
Learning objectives on the day will include:
- Understanding what should be included in Acoustic Design Statements.
- Undertaking overheating assessments to complement the noise impact assessment
- Assessing the opportunities and weaknesses associated with major project applications
Who should attend:
- Team Leaders
- Environmental Health Officers
- Senior and Principal EHPs
- Those with a professional interest in statutory nuisance management
CPD: 2 Hours
In partnership with the London Hub Study Group
