Noise pollution

Building sites, companies holding environmental permits, traffic – the coexistence of housing, trade and industry in the Brussels-Capital Region’s mixed zones has an impact on quality of life in terms of noise.

Your business can help limit the overall level of noise by introducing a number of adapted measures.

These levels vary depending on the type of day (weekday, weekend, public holiday), the time of day and the location according to the Regional Designated Land Use Plan (industrial zone, residential zone, public interest zone, green zone).
