17 September, 21 September, 22 September

During September, Environmental Protection UK (EPUK) has been asked by Defra to co-ordinate a series of six noise action plan stakeholder events across England, in order to explain the noise action planning process to the noise making authorities and other key stakeholders. At these events Defra will explain the rationale behind the recent noise action plan proposals, and provide the opportunity to meet and question the Defra noise team and its advisors to seek clarification on the plans.

The dates for the events are:

  • 17 September – Birmingham, 10am to 1pm
  • 21 September – Manchester, 10am to 1pm
  • 22 September – Leeds, 10am to 1pm.

The events are free to attend. For further information and to register a place visit http://www.environmental-protection.org.uk/events/?area=Noise, contact events@environmental-protection.org.uk or call (01273) 878770.
