Noise Action Week is an annual initiative which aims to focus public attention on the problems of excessive noise. Everyone can take part, local housing authorities, mediation services, schools, youth groups and individuals, basically anyone who has ever been involved in issues surrounding excessive noise.
There are a number of themes that the organisers wish to address including:
If you are a homeowner living in a university town you will know only too well how problematic student properties can be. Noise Action Week is a great opportunity to focus local debate around managing noise from student properties and improving community relations.
