South Hook Noise Group Noise Ratings from recent Vessel visits

impactometer

A revised version of the South Hook Noise Group Noise rating system in which we rate noise emanating from vessels based on a collaborative assessment from locations suffering noise issues from locations within South Pembrokeshire. The new system rates both the distance in which residential properties are affected by noise emanating from the vessel at berth with a range-o-meter rating, and shows the impact of the noise with an impact-o-meter rating.
