A Quiet Area Accessibility Metric for the Southampton Urban Agglomeration

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Published conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This study proposes a new metric that characterises accessibility to “quiet areas”, as defined by the Environmental Noise Directive (END), in urban agglomerations by using Geographical Information System software in conjunction with END noise mapping results. The metric methodology is shown and it is used to determine lack of access to quiet spaces in social disadvantaged areas in the city of Southampton, United Kingdom. The results can help urban planners to identify districts that need better provision of tranquil spaces and to enforce
measures to protect existing quiet areas. The study concludes with a description of the implementation of the quiet area accessibility metric in open source internet urban mapping tools.
