Traduction en anglais : Coping with noise problem in regional town planning.
While looking for enough living quarters for the town people regional planners are often confronted with high levels of noise due to traffic, highways and railways near the planning area.
This may change or even stop the procedure of town planning.
Generally, health authorities - who are more or less involved in the process of planning - should take the chance to demand compatibility of special planning with health care regarding noise.
However, most guidelines on health-compatible noise levels are not legally binding.
This paper describes the variety of health problems accompanied by moderate to high levels of noise.
In regions with traffic noise problems efforts should be directed at maximum health compatibility coupled to highly imaginative planning.
It is suggested that levels of noise of 55 dB (A) (daytime) and of 45 dB (A) (nighttime) should be tolerated near to the building.
