Acoustic Research and Policy Studies

We are regularly commissioned to provide policy advice to Local and State government, and have been involved in providing noise planning policy advice to a number of agencies. Our strong background in planning noise assessments, application of policy in the context of standard development applications and legal appeal situations provides us with a broad knowledge base from which to prepare policy advice.

Examples of noise policy project experience includes:

  • Technical briefing papers and recommendation of acoustic quality objectives for the re-made QLD Environmental Protection (Noise) Policy 2008.
  • Noise policy advice and preparation of noise constraints mapping and interpretation tool for the 2009 Logan City Council Planning Scheme.
  • Development of the noise policy section of the Caloundra Planning Scheme.
  • Preparation of Acoustic Guidelines for Childcare Centre Assessments on behalf of Parramatta City Council.
