Noise Action Week 19th – 24th May 2014
Noise Action Week 2014 provides an opportunity for everyone concerned with noise to raise awareness of the impact noise has on our health and well being.
Noise in the wrong place at the wrong time affects quality of life in our neighbourhoods – and can harm our health. Surveys have found that two thirds of people are bothered by noise at home, a million move each year because of noise and noise is the largest source of complaint to local authorities.
Therefore Noise Action Week gives a focus for local authority noise teams, housing providers, mediation services, health professionals and businesses concerned with reducing the impact of noise to raise awareness of noise reduction solutions – which are often very simple.
EPUK co-ordinate the week, and work year round to raise awareness of noise issues and services available to tackle noise at national level.
Read about work carried out by previous Noise Action Week supporters here - Noise Bulletin NAW 2013. And remember action can be taken to reduce noise year round – not just during Noise Action Week.
