Management of noise from industrial sources in agglomerations 10.1
Noise from industrial sources is currently managed through three parallel and complimentary regimes. These are: development control through land use planning; control through the Environmental Permitting Regulation process; and control through the use of Statutory Nuisance legislation.
The Regulations required that noise level information from industrial sources be determined in terms of several noise indicators11. These included:
Noise from industrial sources in agglomerations: identification of problems and situations that need to be investigated 12.1
It is considered that the existing noise management regime as outlined in Paragraph 10.1 above provides suitable mechanisms for the proactive and reactive management of noise issues from the industrial sources mapped in Environmental Noise Directive agglomerations.
