Noise Action Week 2015

For Happier, Healthier Neighbourhoods
Noise Action Week 2015

During Noise Action Week 2015 – May 18th – 23rd – local authorities, housing providers, mediation and other neighbourhood services across the UK have an opportunity to team up to tackle common noise problems. Noise is never out of the news for long – whether it’s disputes between neighbours and music venues or barking dogs.

Raising awareness of noise is important because:

  • We are all affected by noise – the number of people bothered by neighbour noise increased 17% 2002 – 2012
  • Noise is one of the indicators of public health now being used to inform government policy in England – so if you have a problem, let your council and/or housing provider know.
  • Reducing problem noise costs council tax payers – so preventing noise is in all our interests and more cost effective than answering complaints.

Information on this site helps you work to raise awareness of noise during Noise Action Week.

Noise Action Week is co-ordinated by Environmental Protection UK  who work year round supporting the work of professionals in noise management. It is supported by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health and Environmental Protection Scotland.
