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 include

9. The European Noise Directive defines agglomerations as urbanised areas with a population exceeding 100,000 and requires that noise exposure levels are mapped with agglomeration boundaries and that certain information is made available to the public. The consultation exercise includes draft Noise Action Plans for the four agglomeration areas in Scotland; Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The draft Noise Action Plans for the four Scottish Agglomerations is included within this Consultation exercise. These can be found at Annex A

A separate action plan will be submitted by Transport Scotland shortly, who have responsibility of the planning functions for major transport systems out-with the agglomerations.
