Residents and sailors in and around Dublin Bay have been asked to give their views on a “noise action plan”.

The draft Dublin Agglomeration Noise Action Plan 2024-2028 has been put together by the capital’s local authorities – as in Dublin City Council, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, Fingal County Council, South Dublin County Council, Wicklow County Council and Kildare County Council.

Noise from shipping and road and rail transport is dealt with in the plan, based on strategic noise maps prepared for the Dublin agglomeration in 2022.

By EU law, Strategic Noise Maps and Noise Action Plans are required to be made or revised every five years.

The final Dublin Agglomeration Noise Action Plan 2024-2028 must be completed and issued to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) by July 18th, 2024.

The EPA must submit it to the EU Commission by the end of January 2025.

A period of formal public consultation opened Friday, April 12th and runs till May 24th this year.

The draft Noise Action Plan may be viewed on the Dublin City Council website or the Dublin City Council Consultation Hub at the following links;

Submissions may be made through the consultation hub or alternatively by email [email protected] or in writing to, Air Quality Monitoring and Noise Control Unit, Environment & Transportation Department, Block 3 Floor 1, Civic Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8.
