Present practice is that the Department does not place a monetary value on environmental impacts. This study brought together house price information with noise contour information. The results of this work were used in project H109B.
This study used economic valuation techniques to generate empirical estimates of the amount that households in Birmingham would be willing to pay to reduce their exposure to transport-related noise.
