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.
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:
- West Midlands Housing showed what not to do to your colleagues
- Chelmsford CC mapped noise hotspots enabling public health professionals to advise residents in those areas on noise services
- Pembrokeshire C spoke to license holders about managing noise from music in pubs and clubs
- Ashram Moseley, a West Midlands housing provider, spoke to residents offering information on noise problems
- Nottingham City Homes talked to tenants about noise
- Sedgemoor District Council were out and about in Bridgewater working to cut the cost of noise problems
- .. and we couldn’t get away without a mention of the Brexit debate – with consultancy Bureau Veritas publishing a blog on the European influence on noise standards
