Anti-Noise Regulations in the London Area

Noise is one of the major nuisances Londoners encounter in their daily lives. In urban areas, noise pollution is omnipresent, and it comes from multiple sources: noisy neighbors, building equipment (sanitary, heating, air conditioning, lifts), roads and public transport, railways, air, plants, etc.

Noise pollution is characterized by a high level of noise, which impacts human health tremendously. Noise, in general, causes stress and sleeping disorders, which affect the cardiovascular, immune and endocrine systems directly, and it may also affect mental health. In Britain, noise-related hearing loss is one of the most common diseases, and it has a significant impact on the economy (work stoppages, disability allowances, pensions).

Studies have shown that there is a connection between the noise level of a workplace and occupational accidents (Borchgrevink, HM (2003). Does Health Promotion Work in Relation to Noise. Noise and Health, 5 (18), 25-30), because the noise is stressful and can affect concentration.

ENVIRONMENTAL NOISE IN THE LONDON AREA

Noise is a source of discomfort in the ubiquitous London area because of the high population density and the transport infrastructure associated with it. The neighborhood is a significant source of noise as well. Noise pollution has a direct impact on the lives of Londoners, as shown on noise map.

LONDON NOISE MAP

The Environmental Noise Directive (2002/49/EC) requires competent authorities in Member States to draw up "strategic noise maps" for major roads, railways, airports and agglomerations, using harmonised noise indicators.

NOISE POLLUTION: SOLUTIONS EXIST

The government has taken measures against noise pollution by focusing mainly on sound insulation for houses exposed to excessive noise, and establishing a mechanism to control the noise levels in everyday life, particularly in terms of repression, awareness and regulation, as well as the development of noise mapping.

Over the past few years, many technical solutions have been developed to help improve the quality of life of London residents, such as improved acoustics, sound insulation for buildings, soundproofing in the vicinity of roads, and mitigation of industrial noises.
