The latest issues surrounding noise control will be discussed at our 5th Noise Management Conference on 29 and 30 September.
The event, delivered online across two half days, will provide Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) with the latest insight and guidance around a wide range of pertinent topics – from the new Transport for London’s urban bus sound to defective sound insulation in housing.
An update on the new building regulations for ventilation and overheating will form the keynote, with other sessions briefing attendees on drone noise in changing UK airspace.
A panel of subject-matter experts will also be discussing the management of domestic noise post-Covid, while a local authority will provide supporting insights into how noise complaints can be successfully managed amidst the nation’s shifting tolerance levels after recent lockdowns.
Speakers confirmed so far include Matthew Aylott, civil servant at the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy; environmental health law trainer, researcher and former CIEH President, Tim Everett; Jennifer Clayton, environmental protection service manager at Blackpool Council and James Healey, chair of CIEH’s Building Acoustics Group.
Dr Phil James, CIEH Chief Executive said:
“Noise control issues continue to make headlines and managing all issues related to noise is a key part of the role of EHOs at local authorities across the UK. With many updates on the latest noise policies, case studies and guidance to be delivered over two days, this year’s conference is expected to be the most informative yet. If you are an EHO in a local authority it is a must-attend.”
