Last Tuesday 31st October Russell Richardson was warmly welcomed as the Chairman of the Judges at the Noise Abatement Society Awards.
The society began circa 1960, when John Connell lobbied the Noise Abatement Act through parliament, making noise a statutory nuisance in the UK for the first time, the new noise legislation to be enforced by local authority Environmental Health Officers.
Today the Society is focused on working closely with industry, government, local government, NGOs and members of the public to help find pragmatic solutions to every type of noise problem.
‘John Connell Awards’ were subsequently established in 2001 to support the charity and to recognise local authorities, industry, individuals and organisations judged to have been outstanding in their efforts to both reduce the impact of noise nuisance and seek to pioneer practical and innovative solutions to noise pollution.
It was a fantastic event which RBA Director Russell was very humbled to have been a part of.
