CIEH Noise Survey 2019

4th June 2019 The Noise App

During Noise Action Week, the CIEH launched their Noise Survey 2019. The purpose of Noise Action Week is to help raise awareness of noise pollution, nuisance issues and the effect excess noise can have on the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities.

Public Health England uses CIEH noise data for the Public Health Outcomes Framework, which establishes an important link between noise and its impact on people’s health. With this year’s survey having been simplified, it’s now quicker and easier for you to complete.

CIEH plans to use the results of the survey to engage with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and the Welsh Government to ensure that the important links between noise and public health are considered when developing and taking national policy decisions. CIEH is planning to publish the data collected in an anonymised, aggregated form by region, later this year.

At a time when many local authority services are under pressure and receiving media attention, the survey provides an opportunity to highlight the important work that environmental health and public protection services carry out in dealing with noise related problems.

Quantifying the extent of these problems on a regional and national basis will provide a helpful benchmark for future comparison purposes. The Noise App enables data gathered from service requests and investigations to be managed efficiently and can contribute to the submissions that authorities make to the CIEH Noise Survey.

We would welcome and encourage the participation of your authority in this year’s survey. Get involved in the survey here.
