Provenance information The Envoronmental Noise Regulations 2006 transpose EU 2002/49/EC in full. Environmental Noise is defined as unwanted or harmful outdoor sound created by human activities including Road, Rail, Air Traffic and Industry. Dublin fell under the mapping treshold for agglomerations as set out in the regulations; cities in excess of 250,000 inhabitants. The Dublin Areas Agglomeration boundary was defined by the Coal Ban Area for Dublin. (See metadata for futher information). Dublin City Council, Fingal County Council, South Dubllin County Council and Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council were designated as the noise mapping bodies (Action Planning Authorities) for the agglomeration. All roads, rail and industrial point sources withing Dublin Agglomeration were mapped. The decibel bands were set out in the regulations. The bands where then used along with census data to calculate the number of people exposed to noise within the different decibel levels. This data was then used to assist in creating Action Plans by the Action Planning Authorities.
