Dragonfly Consulting recently created an Events Noise Management Plan and undertook the subsequent Compliance Monitoring for the Gigs in the Garden event, hosted at De Montfort Hall in Leicester. The event boasted performances from big names such as Jax Jones, Busted, Professor Green and Kaiser Chiefs.
The first stages of this project required us to identify and monitor at a number of noise sensitive receptors prior to the event to identify ambient levels. Subsequently, using relevant guidance and communications between Leicester Council Noise Team, a suitable noise limit was identified for the event.
Following the agreement of the suitable noise limit, it was then the job of Dragonfly Consulting to undertake the noise monitoring for the event itself. This involved monitoring noise levels for the duration of the event and feeding back to the front of house team along with taking any noise related complaints and visiting the complainants to demonstrate compliance.
We thoroughly enjoyed having the opportunity to work on an event of this scale and would welcome any opportunities to assist on future events.
