Laois County Council invites submissions from the public on the draft Noise Action Plan 2019-2022, prepared under SI No. 140 of 2006, to address noise from major transport sources.

This is a strategic plan to address noise from major roads in Laois. The plan excludes noise from domestic activities, noise created by neighbours, noise at workplaces or noise inside a means of transport or due to military activities in military areas.

The main purpose of the plan is to inform and consult the public about exposure to noise from major roads and the corrective measures that may be considered to address these issues.

The draft plan and associated maps will be available for inspection at the following locations for a period not less than four weeks beginning on the date of publication of this notice:  Roads Section, Laois County Council, Áras an Chontae, JFL Avenue, Portlaoise (during normal working days from 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m).
