Noise Action Week

 

Noise Action Week  22 – 27 May 2017

Noise Action Week is coordintated every year by Environmental Protection UK. It aims to raise awareness of the cost of noise to the health and well being of communities. Investigating noise complaints costs councils £130 – £7k per complaint, and evidence is mounting up on the harm it does to our health.

Lets us know what you’re planning for Noise Action Week 2017 – activities notified so far include:

  • North Hertfordshire DC will be in town talking to residents about noise
  • Network Rail Cross Rail programme are distributing posters to their construction sites across London reminding workers to keep the noise down
  • Team Canning in Nottingham will be patroling the streets (with storm troopers, possibly) ensuring noise doesn’t get out of hand
  • Uttlesford DC in Essex are contacting all primary schools encouraging them to educate children on the risks of loud noise

Loads of great work took place for NAW 2016. Local authorities and housing providers across the country raised awareness of their services, along with consultancies and businesses working on noise management. Here are some of them to inspire you for 2017:
