The Department of the Environment is proposing a draft Technical Guidance for Noise Mapping and Action Planning which is prepared pursuant to regulation 53 of the Environmental Noise Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2006.
The three main objectives are:
•To determine the noise exposure of the population through noise mapping;
•To make information on environmental noise available to the public; and
•To develop Action Plans based on the mapping results, to reduce noise levels where necessary, and to preserve environmental noise quality where it is good.
