Repeal of Sections 63 to 67 of the Control of Pollution Act 1974 - Noise Abatement Zones
These are areas where current sound levels are established and used as reference levels for the control of noise in that area. The legislation sets out how the NAZs should be established and implemented.
The legislation does not appear to be widely used and is not providing the expected benefits.
Repealing these sections of legislation would remove the need to revoke individual NAZs. This would save local authorities money and provide clarity for businesses.
This is a joint consultation with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). We want to ensure that no significant unexpected negative consequences would result from repeal in Wales and England.
The consultation document and summary of responses are available on the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs website.
