Noise Action Plan Consultation

Noise Control

Councils prepare Noise Action Plans to address environmental noise in their areas. Citizens can have input into these plans through consultation.  

On foot of the revision of the Dublin Agglomeration Noise Maps in 2017 the four local authorities within the Dublin Agglomeration carried out a review of the Noise Action Plan 2013-2018.

On foot of the review and after public consultation a finalised revised Action Plan has been produced which came into effect in December 2018.

This plan is a continuation of the 2013-2018 Noise Action plan and sets out broad principles and actions to mitigate excessive environmental noise and protect areas of good acoustical quality within the Dublin Agglomeration.

The complete ‘Dublin Environmental Noise Action Plan December 2018 – July 2023 can be viewed below:
