He's rides as well so more than happy to have a chat. Send me a PM with mobile number if interested and he'll give you a ring. Despite the earlier reference to us ripping you off, he's offering free advice - I'd be jumping on board with that.
    Sounds great, PM inbound. Thanks

    What sort of development? 100km from cbd you have different regs, each council is unique, but gets trumped by epact regs...

    Half the time the consultants just take a few 'before' dB readings, use some existing published table for dB vs distance for certain activities (construction) and then pad a whole bunch of words and summaries around the actual data. Same goes for enviro, in this case it will probably just be for dust control.


    Unless you're talking a big development, then they may want some detailed work done.
    I will ask the council for examples, but they couldn't recommend someone to do it so I'm not sure how Willing they will be to give an example. Yeah that's what I figured, it's just got to look the part and reference the relevant standards.

    One man band is exactly what I'm looking for, that would be great thanks. It's 100km from Perth.

    We use use Herring Storer and SVT Engineering. Thing is, you're paying engineering rates which will always be costly - one of the most expensive rates going around.

    Definitely shop around. Will ask my colleague if he knows of any cheaper companies. You're probably better off going with one-man bands (usually old schoolers) as they won't have overheads, and may not charge ridiculous rates.

    Just post a bunch of rides during the period of your baseline monitoring and you'll be sweet.

    (+1 for herring storer they've been at it since the only noise was two rocks banging together)

    Thanks for the input people, well some of you. I already have one option but as above don't feel like getting my pants pulled down, they want $$$$+$$$.

    It was stipulated by the council noise monitoring had to be done before the application would be considered.

    I've used Herring Storer for noise impact modelling in the past. No complaints about their work.

    Not to mention those ponces who run self help 'workshops'
    Fuck right off, a workshop is a place for industrial stuff where real men do manly things and usually hurt themselves in the process.

    Disclaimer:- I might have had a couple tonight, I'll seek counselling tomorrow.
    Blimey.

    Sounds like someone's Wellness Therapist Coach is off sick this week.

    Sometimes you just need a statement which says that the proposed development is unlikely to increase the existing impacts, or some other wank like that..

    I did originally put in the post we'll be expensive, but deleted it as I figured that was best served in a PM...

    What a crock of shit.
    Sooner or later we might just wake up and accept what we are and make the most of it.
    Might have gone a bit off topic here.

    I could make the same comment about officials at the track, who the fk needs them..?
