Closes 28 May 2018

Opened 24 Apr 2018

Overview

Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown County Council is currently preparing a ‘Noise Action Plan’ for the County in accordance with EC Directive 2002/49/EC and S.I. No. 140 of 2006 relating to the assessment and management of environmental noise. This strategic plan will cover environmental noise from traffic and heavy/light rail.  It covers the period from December 2018 to November 2023. It excludes noise from domestic activities or nuisance noise.

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, Traffic & Road Safety Section, is undertaking a Public Consultation for the Draft Noise Action Plan and welcomes all submissions and observations on the plan.

Details

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 drawing up an action plan to manage noise issues and their effects.
  • To reduce noise where possible and maintain environmental acoustic quality in areas where it is of good quality.

Why We Are Consulting

The Council is seeking comments and observations from the public to help inform the Noise Action Plan and amend if necessary. This Noise Action Plan and associated Noise Maps will be placed on public display in the offices of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council from April 25th to May 28th 2018 and will also be available for viewing on the Council’s website.
