Why Choose CFA?
Planning applications for residential developments often have conditions attached relating to the noise of an adjacent road, railway, factory, pub, restaurant, night-club, etc. The condition may stipulate that the noise assessment be carried out in accordance with PAN56 (Planning Advice Note 56 Planning and Noise, which is published by the Scottish Executive). To deal with a condition like this, the noise is measured and the results used to calculate what level will exist in the new dwellings. In this respect we have experience in noise affecting houses, flats, care homes, hospitals, student residences and barracks. We can also deal with conditions relating to railway vibration.

We work on planning applications at a rate of one a week. Hence, since the company’s inception in 1997, we have worked on literally hundreds of applications. This, together with Charlie’s experience in environmental noise from 1983 onwards, means we have a great deal of knowledge in this field. This means we know how to carry out the measurements and calculate noise levels in the proposed houses/flats, to obtain the best results. It also means that if a site is too noisy, we can recommend what to do to progress the planning application.

Charlie has also given evidence to several public inquiries relating to planning appeals.

We also work to control the ingress of noise into hotels, offices, hospitals and other health care facilities, though these are not usually conditioned by the local authority.
