Noise action plan for Wicklow
WICKLOW County Council has prepared a Draft Noise Action Plan 2018 - 2023 and submissions or observations can be lodged up until August 15.
The plan is in compliance with the requirements of the Environmental Noise Directive and the Environmental Noise Regulations and is mainly focused on the impact of major roads within County Wicklow.
The plan applies to the areas adjacent to roads in County Wicklow, which experience traffic volumes in excess of three million vehicles a year and railways with more than 30,000 train passengers per year. Strategic noise maps have been prepared for all roads and railways deemed to fall within these thresholds.
The action reviews the results of strategic noise mapping undertaken within County Wicklow and details the progress achieved in relation to the implementation of the previous Noise Action Plan.

Alternatively the draft plan can be inspected in the County Buildings or at each District Office from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday. The deadline for submissions or observations in August 15.
