In the case of a refusal of planning consent, the would-be developer may decide to appeal against the decision which may, in turn, lead to a Public Inquiry or Public Hearing. In such cases, the developer may need to appoint an 'expert witness' to give evidence on the noise impacts of their proposal and to face cross-examination from the opposing side. Likewise, in the case of alleged 'nuisance' caused by an existing development, an expert witness may be required to provide evidence to the courts on the noise issues arising.
