- Noise Action Week 2014 will be 19 – 24 May -
Noise Action Week 2013 provided a great opportunity to sound off about noise problems. Local authority noise teams, housing providers, mediation services and businesses concerned with reducing the impact of noise used it to focus attention on the services they provide to tackle noise – avoiding noise problems, and advising neighbours how they can help with reducing the impact of problem noise – read all about it here – July Noise Bulletin NAW 2013. Noise in the wrong place at the wrong time affects the quality of life in our neighbourhoods – and can harm our health. Noise is a common cause of neighbour disputes, and can impact our health and well being – especially in the summer months when windows are open and gardens used as outdoor rooms.
They all provide services year round – not just during Noise Action Week – and everyone can take care to keep it down all year round.
During Noise Action Weeks the following advice films have been made on how we can all take care to reduce noise:
