Event description: This one-day practical workshop will focus on overcoming traditional acoustic
challenges to urban planning and development. It is being organised in collaboration the UK Acoustics
Network (UKAN) Noise and Soundscape SIG, the Noise Abatement Society, Apex Acoustics, University
College London, the Institute of Acoustics (IOA), the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the
Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH).The event explore offer a variety of ways to supplement traditional acoustic engineering practices and community engagement. During the day we will explore the practical application of soundscape principles and technology being used in real-world projects, and the application of soundscape research to ongoing and future work.
 

Who should attend: Acousticians, environmental health practitioners, consultants, architects, planners,
public health practitioners, and academics interested in research-to-practice would all benefit from
attending.

Benefits of attending: You will leave equipped with knowledge about the practical application of
soundscape in the built environment. This will enable you to tackle noise problems from an entirely different
perspective, and understand the implications of context in noise impact assessments. We are planning the day in three parts to provide the information, skills and some experience that you may need to take this practice forwards.
 

Programme
Part One –Soundscape Overview and Theory - Session chair: Jack Harvie-Clark, Association of Noise
Consultants

This session will provide an overview of the emerging field of applied soundscape practice. The importance and opportunities offered by this approach will be explained in enabling both noise producing and sound sensitive development within a thriving, sustainable economy. Confirmed speakers:
