Noise from pubs and clubs - NO01051

A review of available data on entertainment noise from pubs and clubs has been conducted with the aim of determining how a rigorous UK method for assessing it might be devised.
There is considerable evidence that a noise annoyance problem exists and significant variation in how it is measured and assessed across the country. There is therefore a clear need for a universal, validated UK assessment method. Several candidate assessment methods are identified. These include methods specifically proposed for pub and club noise, those for general low-frequency noise, those relying on absolute criteria and those based on
relative assessments.
