Following the completion of the Round 3 noise maps and action plans, the Irish Environmental Protection Agency is focussed on the provision of public information and advocacy around transport noise. The publication of the noise maps was tweeted by our Communications Unit. The noise maps are being used by the various Local Authorities to communicate to the public about the modelled noise levels in their area and how they may be addressed in their noise action plan. It has given the public improved access and a better understanding of what the noise maps are all about.We are also developing a noise briefing paper to give an update on environmental noise, which we will add to the noise mapping information on the EPA website. In addition, we are producing an environmental noise Factsheet/Infographic to help provide better public information on noise. We are also liaising with our Communication team to publish a noise feature article, and some other noise related features during 2019. The intention is to increase public awareness around environmental noise with a view to putting a greater focus on the various LA noise maps and action plans, and their implementation over the next five years.
