Consultation description

This consultation is seeking views on the second round of noise action plans which revise those previously adopted. There are three draft noise action plans covering roads, railways and agglomerations (large urban areas).

The action plans have been prepared in line with the terms of the Environmental Noise Directive (END), which requires Member States to produce noise maps every five years charting the level of noise from industry and transport sources, and the number of people exposed to it. The action plans are produced as a result of the maps to provide guidance to those responsible for managing the noise, on how best to do so.
