Draft noise action plans: consultation

The European Noise Directive (END) was adopted in 2004 and requires member states to bring about measures which are intended to avoid, prevent or reduce noise on a prioritised area basis.

What does the consultation cover

7. The Environmental Noise (Scotland) Regulations 2006 places responsibility on the Scottish Ministers as the competent authority to prepare and approve Noise Action Plans for the four agglomeration areas. This consultation relates to those draft Action Plans for the four agglomerations. It does not cover the action planning functions relating to major transport systems out-with the agglomerations, which is the responsibility of Transport Scotland, nor does it include the Noise Action Plans covering Airports.
