Every year Noise Action Week provides a focus for raising awareness of noise problems in neighbourhoods and the effect of noise on health and well being.
The week is an opportunity for local authority noise teams, housing providers, mediation services, neighbourhood police teams, businesses and communities to make themselves heard:
- by raising awareness of the impacts noise has on neighbours
- promoting simple practical ways to prevent noise annoying neighbours
- promoting the services available to tackle noise
Noise in the wrong place at the wrong time affects the quality of life in our neighbourhoods – and can harm health. Noise is a common cause of neighbour disputes, that can be prevented by better communication and awareness of neighbours. There are practical ways to reduce noise too.
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. You can find more information on reducing noise around homes here.
