Noise Action Week - make a difference in Heeley

Thursday, May 19, 2011

Local MP Meg Munn and Environmental Protection UK are calling on communities in Heeley to get together to reduce noise during 23rd to 27th May for Noise Action Week 2011. Noise Action Week is an annual initiative organised to promote community action on noise pollution affecting neighbourhoods from early morning DIY to late night music.


Environmental Protection UK is a national charity that provides expert policy analysis and advice on air quality, land quality, waste and noise. It supplies advice on the effect of noise to people and communities in terms of a wide range of issues, including public health, planning, transport, energy and climate.


Meg Munn MP said:


“I welcome Noise Action Week and believe it can raise awareness in Heeley about neighbourhood noise and the solutions available to tackle it. It gives everyone involved in managing noise problems the opportunity to focus on the difficulties excessive noise can cause for us all - at home, at work, at study and at leisure.”


During Noise Action Week everybody is urged to:

         Consider the noise they make and the effect it has on others,

         Consider the noises that disturb them, and

         Use practical solutions to everyday noise problems (See for more information -http://www.environmental-protection.org.uk/noise/environmental-noise/noise-pollution/ )


Noise can cause disruption and distress to everyone - at home, at leisure, at work and at study. A 2009 survey found that a third of people questioned became stressed due to traffic noise and over 90% of people wanted to protect quiet areas. These findings were supported by government research this year that showed people value tranquil spaces near their homes, with almost 20% of people believing they live in noisy environments.
