Noise Action Week

 

Noise Action Week  21 – 26 May 2018

Noise Action Week is coordintated every year by Environmental Protection UK. The week is an opportunity to raise awareness of the cost of noise to the health and well being of communities and individuals.

Thank you to everyone who supported Noise Action Week this year. We hope to build on your support to make NAW 2019 heard even more widely.

While the week provides a focus for raising the profile of unhealthy noise, every week should be a noise acton week. We can all improve our health by turning it down and considering those around us.

Why is it important to reduce exposure to noise?

  • Noise can disturb us at home, study, work and leisure
  • We all have the capacity to make noise that disturbs others
  • Investigating noise complaints costs councils £130 – £7k per complaint
  • Evidence is mounting up on the harm noise does to our health.

Who can help with noise?

  • We all can – by being more considerate when carrying out noisy activities
  • Local councils – are required to investigate noise problems by law
  • Housing providers
  • Mediation services
