Cllr Roderic O’Gorman discussing noise pollution from the M50 with Duncan Stewart

Fingal County Council has recently published its Draft Noise Action Plan 2019 – 23. This sets out areas of Fingal which are impacted by noise pollution from roads, railways or the airport. The draft Plan is currently out on consolation, so members of the public can give their views on it. You can view the plan here.

As part of the Plan, Fingal will have to engage with Transport Infrastructure Ireland (the organisation that controls the M50) to make proposals for reducing noise pollution. I know that a number of estates across Dublin 15 have been impacted by noise pollution coming from the M50. In order to give Fingal a stronger evidence base in its negotiations with Transport Infrastructure Ireland, it would be useful for as many residents as possible to make a submission to the draft Plan.

You can make a submission via the Fingal Public Consultation website here.

You can also make a submission by email to  or by post to:

The Senior Engineer, Environment Department, Fingal County Council, County Hall, Main Street, Swords, Co. Dublin, K67 X8Y2.

The closing date for the receipt of submissions is 9th November 2018.

Feel free to drop me a copy of your submission to
