The operator must submit a notification to the municipality’s environmental protection authority regarding a temporary activity or event causing noise or vibration. The notification must be submitted at least 30 days before the activity begins.
According to Section 118 of the Environmental Protection Act, a notification must be submitted to the municipality’s environmental protection authority for temporary activities or events, such as construction or public gatherings, if the noise or vibration is expected to be particularly disturbing.
The goal of noise control is to ensure a healthy and pleasant living environment with minimal disturbance from noise. Various activities, such as construction work, road work, earthmoving, and public events, may generate noise that disturbs residents in the vicinity or hampers work. Therefore, temporary noise-generating activities and events must be notified to the municipality’s environmental protection authority in accordance with Section 118 of the Environmental Protection Act (527/2014).
Notifications are submitted through the Lupapiste service.
