Noise action planning
The EU: Working together against noise
The European Community produced a uniform concept entitled the Environmental Noise Directive in 2002 to reduce harmful effects and nuisances. This obliges the member states of the European Union to draw up noise maps and prepare noise action plans with the involvement of the general public.
The scope of our services
Noise mapping and noise action planning
restricted to traffic routes that are affected depending on the respective level of the EU Environmental Noise Directive.
To prepare suitable action plans, the affected transport routes are analysed with a view to efficient noise reduction planning and corresponding noise reduction proposals are then put forward. If noise reduction measures are being implemented as part of the first phase of EU noise action planning, there will also be an analysis and evaluation of the measures already implemented.
Complete mapping of all traffic routes and noise action planning
all traffic routes relevant from the emissions point of view.
The results are then less ambiguous and by taking all transport routes into account, they are also meaningful on a qualitative basis for all significant emission locations relating to overall traffic noise. Key input and conclusions for urban development planning can be obtained from the results (land-use planning and development planning). For noise action planning, the first step is to identify and analyse all noise hot spots. The results then flow into a priority list. The next step is to work on proposed measures and then draw up action plans. If noise reduction measures are being implemented as part of the first phase of EU noise action planning, there will also be an analysis and evaluation of the measures already implemented.
Noise abatement plans
both classical in accordance with former Section 47a BImSchG German Federal Emission Control Act and selectively to improve the noise situation in hot spots
Inter-municipal noise mapping and noise action planning
Public participation, public relations work, round tables, information events, workshops and noise walks
e.g. by interview, postal questionnaires or online questionnaires
