Description and measurement of environmental noise - Part 2: Guide to the acquisition of data pertinent to land use

Executive summary

Guidance on the acquisition of data for measuring and describing environmental noise relevant to general land use.

Abstract

This part of BS 7445 describes methods for the acquisition of data which provide descriptors that enable:

a) a description of the environmental noise in a specified area of land to be made in a uniform way;

b) the compatibility of any land use activity or projected activity to be assessed with respect to existing or predicted noise.

Using the data as a basis, authorities may establish a system for selecting the appropriate land use, as far as levels of noise are concerned, for a specified area, or the sources of noise - existing or planned - which are acceptable with respect to land use, existing or planned.

This British Standard does not deal in detail with calculation methods to obtain data pertinent to land use.

This standard does not give guidance on the estimation of the overall uncertainty of the results.
