The Minister for Natural Resources and Food, Alun Davies has announced new measures aimed at ensuring peace and tranquillity within Welsh communities.

He's published a five-year draft noise action plan which, he says, sets out how the Welsh Government, local authorities, Public Health Wales, Natural Resources Wales and other public bodies will work together and make use of the most up-to-date information to manage noise.

The Minister has also announced half a million pounds for local authorities to improve the provision of tranquil green spaces for those communities that need it most.
