PREPARATION OF NOISE ACTION PLAN 2018 – 2023 FOR MEATH COUNTY COUNCIL

 

Meath County Council, under Article 7 of the above regulations, intends to prepare a third Noise Action Plan for County Meath.

 

The regulations apply to environmental noise including noise from traffic, rail and aircraft. The regulations do not apply to noise from domestic activities, noise created by neighbours, noise at work places, noise inside means of transport or noise due to military activities in military areas.

The main purpose of the Noise Action Plan is to:-

  • Inform and consult the public about noise exposure, its effects and the measures which may be considered to address noise problems
  • Address strategic noise issues by requiring competent authorities to draw up action plans to manage noise issues and their effects
  • Reduce noise, where possible, and maintain the environmental acoustic quality where it is good

 

The strategic Noise maps along with the Draft Noise Action Plan below can be downloaded from Monday 11th June 2018.
