    • Meeting of the EIONET National Reference Centres fon Noise 26 of September of 2013 - Barcelona DEVELOPMENT OF NOISE MAPS AND ACTION PLANS IN CATALONIA Eduard Puig Solé, epuigs@gencat.cat Service for the Prevention of Pollution Acoustics and Light Directorate General of Environmental Quality 1
    • AGGLOMERATIONS in Catalonia Supra agglomerations: 1. Barcelonès I (> 250 000 c) 2. Barcelonès II (> 250 000 c) 3. Baix Llobregat I (> 250,000 c) 4. Baix Llobregat II (> 100,000 c) 5.

    • Competences of the Department of Planning and Sustainability 1. Controlling noise pollution from transport infrastructure. 2. The temporary suspension of the objectives of sound quality in case of public works infrastructure owned by the Government of Catalonia. 3. Declaring supra-municipal areas (more than one cities). 4. Provide technical support, administrative law and necessary for the preparation of strategic noise maps for local governments and infrastructure owners. 5. Coordinate and approve the strategic noise maps of a metropolitan-wide supra. 6. Gather the strategic noise maps and to comply with the reporting requirements of Directive 2002/49/EC of 25 June. Meeting of the EIONET National Reference Centres fon Noise 5
    • Competences of the Department of Planning and Sustainability 7. Declaring an area of ​special protection for sound (ZEPQA) in areas not included in land development. 8. Coordinate and approve action plans regarding noise from the crowded field of supramuncipal agglomerations. 9. Report of the action plans relating to noise pollution of the big roads, railways, major airports and ports. 10. To support the work of inspection and control of noise pollution, when requested local authorities. 11. Managing the system of accreditation and monitoring bodies for the prevention of noise pollution. Meeting of the EIONET National Reference Centres fon Noise 6

    • The strategic noise maps in Catalonia Objective: To obtain data on the population exposed to different noise levels, using GIS tools, across the population data with maps of existing noise situation. Benefit: strategic noise maps with minimal cost. A good compromise between cost and precision of the results. Philosophy: the money must be spent on making plans and not on the maps. Meeting of the EIONET National Reference Centres fon Noise 8
    • The strategic noise maps in Catalonia – the methodology for the second round All maps (>100.000) 16/2002 of Catalonia) already carried out in the first phase (Law Tasks of update of cartography and of data, through selective measurements (short periods & 24 hours). New calculations of exposed population with data updated in an environment GIS Improvements: Obtaining of data depending on the typology of source. Meeting of the EIONET National Reference Centres fon Noise 9
    • Our responsible for drawing up strategic noise maps 1. Infrastructure: Holders of the infrastructure, develop and approve. 2. Agglomerations: Local authorities. The council develops and approves. Supra Scope: The municipality prepares and the Department of Planning and Sustainability (DTES) coordinates and approves. Establish performance criteria and presentation of results. Coordination between municipalities. Quality control. Technical advice.

    • The action plans in Catalonia Action plans 1º phase, done. Our responsible: Establish criteria and methodology of format and structure of the shares (Action Plan document). Coordination between municipalities. Technical advice. Meeting of the EIONET National Reference Centres fon Noise 13
    • Structure of the Action Plan document In each action is performed, a summary table with the following format: [1] Type of action: There are 5 types of actions as: regulation and compliance, incentives, investments, strategic actions, awareness and consciousness. [2] Priority: High, medium or low [3] Agent that promotes action: Who supports this action, for example the technical services of the council. [4] Agent who directed the action: For whom or who benefits from this action, for example the group of carriers [5] Description / purpose: A brief description of the action. [6] Monitoring: If any monitoring has been done and what, for example, periodic measurements of noise levels [7] Field of activity: outreach in the town: local or global [8] Resources: economic expenditure if quantifiable [9] Benefit: If the expected benefit can be obtained, with decreased levels, affected population, ...

    • Conclusions and future trends – noise maps STRATEGIC NOISE MAPS: 1. Finding the commitment between accuracy and reasonable cost to make the maps. Better to reserve the costs for the corrective measures. 2. The maps have been based with acoustic measurements. In the next years, it will be necessary to incorporate the calculation/predictive methods into the methodologies (CNOSSOS-EU) 3. And maybe in the future revision of the directive, will be interesting to establish certain targets to reach, not only schelude as now , will be a good pressure measure for all. Meeting of the EIONET National Reference Centres fon Noise 13
    • Conclusions and future trends – action plans ACTION PLANS: 1. The first phase of the action plans they have been focused on in the improvement of the most exposed points. It will be necessary to take the calm zones into account in the following phases. 2. Educating in the need to manage in the long term, between the road/railway/airports holders and also the towns (politicians and technicians) Meeting of the EIONET National Reference Centres fon Noise 14
