Noise Action Week 20 – 25th May 2013
Next week is an opportunity to sound off about noise problems. Local authority noise teams, housing providers, mediation services and businesses concerned with reducing the impact of noise will be providing advice on avoiding noise problems, and advising neighbours how they can help with reducing the impact of problem noise. 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.
During Noise Action Week 2013 we are encouraging everyone to consider how they can avoid causing noise disturbance – at home, in the street, at work and at play.
