About Us

Red Kite Acoustics offers a range of services related to acoustics, noise management and noise control including noise monitoring and reporting, noise assessments for planning or licence applications, consent applications, stakeholder engagement on noise issues, training for contractors on noise related issues and independent peer review of noise reports prepared by others.

Do you have a project, development, site or event that will make or be affected by noise? We provide advice on
- how to control the noise your business makes and maintain good relations with your neighbours,
- how to develop noise management plans for your event
- how to incorporate good acoustic design into your development so that existing external noise doesn't adversely affect future occupants
- noise monitoring and reporting
- how to protect your interests against noise made by others

Planning out noise problems at the design stage can save you time and money. We can provide reports for anything from small developments to Environmental Impact Assessments, and can liaise with the local authority planning and environmental health teams on your behalf.

We can undertake assessments to comply with a range of standards including BS4142, ProPG Noise, BS8233 and others so if you have been asked to submit a noise report with an acronym you don't understand, give us a call and we will see if we can help!

If you require a construction environmental management plan, a ''section 61'' or ''prior consent'' application, or are at risk of a control of pollution or nuisance notice following investigation by a local authority we can advise on next steps for noise management, working with your legal advisors if appropriate. We can take care of all your noise and dust management needs on construction and open sites including management plans, applications for consents, monitoring and reporting.

With over a decade experience in managing noise at events from 3000 to 30000+ Red Kite Acoustics is well placed for your festival or event. We can deliver on all phases from the licence application through to the event noise monitoring, liaising with the local authority throughout the process. We will respond to noise complaints and also manage your complaint phone line during the event if required.

We can advise on noise control from licensed premises and provide supporting information for licensing applications, following complaints or when you are considering making a change.

With years of experience including on controversial projects including Heathrow expansion, our staff has the capabilities and expertise to support your consultation events to talk to stakeholders at all levels about noise and/or health. From jargon busting to describing impacts and explaining noise mitigation and management we can attend consultation events, stakeholder forums, and community liaison meetings.

We are a small independent company with access to a network of asociates where workload requires so that we can remain agile.

Our staff are members of the Insitute of Acoustics and/or the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.
