Expert Witness: Acoustical Control Consultants

Acoustical Control Consultants have extensive experience as Expert Witnesses in a range of legal or quasi-legal matters such as:

  • Planning Appeals
  • Public Inquiries
  • Noise Abatement/Nuisance Appeals
  • Trading Hours & Licencing

Ideally the matter will be resolved before the hearing or appearance in Court, and a strong case helps with negotiations at this stage. Whilst any Expert’s primary duty is to assist the Court/ Decision Maker, there are inevitably different sides to every case and it is important to ensure that all relevant aspects are identified and presented in an easily comprehensible manner so that they can be readily understood by all parties.

Where there are weaknesses in your case it is important that these are identified and you are made aware of them at the earliest opportunity. Similarly you need to be aware of and understand the strengths and weaknesses of the opposing case. It is only under these conditions that you can make an informed decision as to how best to proceed.

Our role is to help you understand what may be a highly technical matter, sufficiently clearly to be able to make the correct decisions; and to clearly present the acoustic aspects of your case in the most robust manner so that the Court/ Decision Maker can then arrive at the correct judgement.
