Noise Action Week
We promote and co-ordinate Noise Action Week every year on a tiny budget to raise awareness of the cost of noise to the health and well being of communities – as well as to local councils. Investigating noise complaints costs councils £130 – £7k per complaint. In addition, anyone driven to complain to councils about noise needs to provide evidence to support investigations. We are working to find funding for Noise Action Week 2017 – date to be announced soon. If you can offer any support contact us at email@example.com.
Meanwhile a huge thanks to all who supported Noise Action Week 2016.
Loads of great work took place during May to reduce the health, social and financial cost of noise to all of us. Unnecessary noise puts a huge burden on our society – from causing disruption and stress to people at home, work and study. Local authorities and housing providers across the country raised awarenss of their services, along with consutlancies and businesses working on noise management. Here are some of them:
- 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
