Big Al is totally sick on boarding noise n that. Not sketchy like other experts who’d bail on like even a mini vert. Innit.
Sorry, a quick translation… It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that Alan Saunders is the king of skatepark noise assessments.
Distance and screening to residential properties are the two key factors in controlling skatepark noise impact. Alan provided Expert Witness on the landmark Richardson v Devizes Town Council, 2001 case which required development of assessment methods which are now used in Local Authority policy to ensure appropriate siting of facilities. We have advised on a large number of skateparks in recent years on both sides of the ramp!
