How are the noise impacts we predict in our environmental noise assessments monetised? Peter will focus on the history and current implementation of the government's WebTAG methodology of monetising noise impacts, including its fundamental approach, evidence base and philosophy.
Prior to the meeting taking place, Institute President Jo Webb will present an Award for Services to the Institute to Paul Michel, a former long serving committee member and secretary to the North West Branch. This award publicly acknowledges the assistance that Paul provided to the Branch over many years and his reluctant acceptance of life without Quink.
