With its 2 700 football players is the world of FF, in Nacka, sweden, one of Sweden's largest sports clubs. However, nowadays, it is much more difficult for the club to find a match and practice times for all teams.
the reason is that the measured noise levels at 45 decibels, by a number of the complaining neighbors. Thus, exceeded the environmental protection agency's guidelines for the so-called ”industrial noise”.
the court is subject to the Land - and environmental court of appeal. If it is, it would be a major blow to the sport. The Swedish 6 of 140 football fields can lose an average of 2.6 million aktivitetstimmar of the environmental protection agency's proposal for fixed hours, will become a reality, according to the Aftonbladet newspaper.
the Health impacts of noise pollution should not be under-estimated. However, it is not reasonable to equate the sound of children playing a soccer match with the noise from the factory. It also needs to be weighed against the adverse effects on the health of the public as a result of it will be more difficult for children and young people to play sports. In fact, today it is just 44 per cent of boys and 22 per cent of girls reach the recommended level of one hour of physical activity per day.
In the event of conflict in which this ends up, the focus is often on the selfish desires of the complaining neighbors. And of course, one can only wonder how the tick that takes up residence next to a sports field, and then begins to curl.
But a more important question is why the law has given such great power, for the squeaky-door neighbors. This does not apply only in the event of complaints of noise from the sports facilities, and concert halls, compared to other nations, the swedes have also a great opportunity to file an appeal, delaying and making it more expensive houses.
the basic Principle should be clear: the Squeaky neighbors should be much less powerful than they are today.
over The last few decades, large cities began to grow by condensation. It's a trend worth applauding. Climate change is just one of the reasons why, in the sparsely populated, car-dependent towns and cities is a bad idea.
and yet, the judgment in the case of the Boovallen has not been made and that the environmental protection agency is planning to review the guidelines for the noise from the restaurant. However, the politicians should take a broader approach to how conflicts of interest are to be settled in the growing towns and cities. The basic principle should be clear: the Squeaky neighbors should be much less powerful than they are today.
