Redevelopment of the Lord Nelson Pub

Client Name
Tout Limited
Somerset, United Kingdom
  • Acoustics & vibration


To comply with the requirements of the Planning Authority, and to address concerns raised by local residents regarding the proposed redevelopment, SLR completed the following:

  • An Operational Noise Assessment in accordance with BS4142:2014+A1:2019.
  • An assessment against World Health Organisation Guidance Noise Levels.

The development application was refused on grounds that included “The proposed development by virtue of its siting, massing and its proximity to the site boundaries would have an adverse impact upon the living conditions of the neighbours”


A public enquiry was held in February 2020, where an SLR Consultant appeared on behalf of the Appellant as the Noise Expert Witness. The Inspector granted the Appeal.
