An action plan detailing how the Welsh Government will work with its partners to manage noise levels in Welsh communities has been launched by Welsh Labour’s Minister for Natural Resources and Food, Alun Davies.
The five-year noise action plan sets out how the Welsh Government, local authorities, Natural Resources Wales, Public Health Wales and other public bodies will work together and make use of the most up-to-date information to manage noise.
The plan also confirms 34 additional “quiet areas” in Swansea, Cardiff and Newport, taking the total number of quiet areas in Wales to 63. It covers all forms of noise including transport and major industry, occupational noise and noise from public spaces, homes, pubs and clubs and clearly sets out how different forms of noise are being managed in Wales. The Plan also identifies positive initiatives that have been used in Wales to successfully manage noise levels.
