TNEI undertakes specialist noise assessments and provides advice on a wide range of projects - from initial desktop studies and baseline surveys through to detailed assessments, planning submissions, compliance monitoring and support for Appeals and Public Inquiries.
During the last five years staff have prepared evidence for 33 Public Inquiries for wind farms and a quarry extension proposal. To date, at each inquiry TNEI have been involved in, all noise issues have been resolved to the satisfaction to the appointed Inspector/Reporter.
TNEI always look to provide robust technical services to ensure that the assessments are defensible throughout the planning process and at Public Inquiry if and when required. In addition to supporting our own assessments TNEI has also recently been involved in a number of projects where we have been brought in at the Public Inquiry stage to review and update a noise assessment that has been undertaken by a third party consultant.
