Central government has proposed that, in pursuit of the requirement in the European Environmental Noise Directive, it would identify 'Quiet Areas' following liaison with local authorities. This is expected to happen during 2010. I have proposed that a second tier of 'Tranquil Spaces' be identified at the same time. These would be areas of more local importance, and would be identified by boroughs rather than by me.
