Noise Emissions from a Manufacturing Plant in South Wales
Since 2013 residents in Llanelli and the surrounding area have been complaining about the noise levels of the Gestamp Tallant Plant in South Wales which is a leading car manufacturer. Local MPs and residents have raised concerns over the noise levels at the plant which has led to legal action. Despite £200,000 worth of measures being put in place to half the noise levels in recent months, the residents are still unable to open windows and this is continuing to affect many people’s sleeping patterns.
One of the local residents has described the noise from the site as “incredibly loud and can be heard not just near the factory but also much further away. It goes on day and night and we were told that the noise would stop in October last year when the plant installed sound proofing but this has made no difference”.
If the noise levels from the manufacturing plant are causing problems for local residents, this would indicate that the noise levels at the plant itself could be a potential problem for workers if no hearing protection is worn. Prolonged exposure to noise without protection can cause noise induced hearing loss.
