however, in the “incriminated” areas of the Marina and Stampace districts, the noise level at night measured continuously (22.00-06.00) was almost always above 60 dB. Let’s imagine what results would have been achieved in the period of real noise pollution.
1- Can the Municipal Noise Plan be changed with the Noise Restoration Plan, given that the approval procedures are different?
2- It is possible to establish in the Acoustic Plan a maximum admitted noise level (60dB) not contemplated in the relevant legislation for the sole purpose of achieving a political purpose: to save the forest of seats at the table and with it try to bury the disastrous environmental policy which has distinguished the local councils of every color?
3- Can an Acoustic Restoration Plan be considered valid, instructed on phonometric measurements performed when noise pollution is at its lowest?
I am writing for your help, because my life has become impossible. I make a brief summary of the situation: the house where I live owned by me is a three-family, I occupied the central part. The apartment on the side is nearing completion, but they have opened a load-bearing wall, a veranda is made, as well as widening two windows in the attic.
They started working in October 2017, since that date they have been making noises of all kinds, initially with diesel generator and compressor, the noises of pneumatic hammer, then hammer drill or demolition, are simply intolerable for health. every day the dB tolerance limit, reaching peaks of 110 db (NB measured by PC), in addition to the noises of demolition hammer etc., even a week before Christmas, they used the compressor with diesel, emitting the noise and the intolerable smell.
I simply explained my current situation, I also want to say that I had a heart operation in 2010 and I have other pathologies, now because of these noises, I suffer from anxiety attacks, I can no longer sleep, I have diabetes from stress, blood pressure with sudden heart attack risk, my wife is depressed because she can no longer work on the computer, our life seems to have no future in this community.
I have also reported the mayor to the Municipality either via email or phone call many times, but I have never seen any employee of the municipality, who verifies that all the works are carried out in accordance with both environmental and health safety law, I I have reached the limit of tolerance. Please kindly need your advice, thank you in advance for your availability.
I am writing to you because for about 10 days my quality of life has deteriorated due to a noise that only I seem to hear in such an annoying way. It is not a tinnitus, it is also perceived by others but it devastates me.
My home is 15 meters away from a primary substation of the energy distribution company. I have been hearing a constant noise for some time that I thought was related to transformers, but lately this noise has gotten much worse. The disturbance in my living environment can be even more evident when the doors and windows are closed.
Initially I heard it only at night now throughout the day and also in areas not adjacent to the plant. I am beginning to be really worried because I am noticing negative effects, both on a physiological and psychological level, and I think I have developed a particular sensitivity to this strange noise that now prevents me from normal daily activities.
I called the network management company several times and they assured me that the noise I hear does not depend on their control unit, it does not seem to have the characteristics, and given the proximity and a noise that should increase when opening the windows.
