Abstract

Since 1995, when city administrations in Italy authorise any new temporary/permanent activity on municipal territory, they have been required by state and regional laws to ask for preventive evaluation of its compatibility to the noise zoning, either as noise source or in certain typologies, as sensitive receiver. Since 1998 the City of Rome, Department for Environmental Policies, has been enforcing that legal commitment through specific technical/administrative procedures. In accordance with the ongoing development of the regulations both at the European and the national levels, as well as with the more recent 2001 regional law establishing specific norms and criteria for the territory, the city administration is tailoring the technical/administrative procedures to the various activity typologies and in any given typology, has further weighted them by criteria that are linked to general characteristics conventionally considered predicting factors of different environmentally noise impact. To be effective, the environmental preventive action, must be implemented through interactive networking among the various sectors of the city administration. In order to promote a noise pollution prevention cultural perspective, the Department for Environmental Policies is also implementing informative/formative/supportive interventions for other relevant sectors of the city administration as well as the community.
