Bristol to pilot Quiet Areas

DEFRA has selected Bristol as a pilot city to trial the identification and management of quiet areas. This is mainly because of the work we have done so far on consulting on quiet areas using the bristolstreets map and AskBristol website. We have also developed a wide range of internal contacts and working arrangements through our existing work on noise and air quality. A meeting is scheduled for 22nd October where we will look at the issue of how to identify "quiet areas" in the city with a range of internal stakeholders. DEFRA are currently undertaking a consultation on Noise Action Planning with sessions being run by EPUK.
