Fast growing PR and design agency, Westgate Communications, has been appointed by the Noise Abatement Society to deliver a targeted PR campaign for the charity.

The agency’s creative arm, Westgate Design, has also been appointed to develop the charity’s website.

Established 50 years ago by John Connell, the Noise Abatement Society raises awareness of noise pollution and pollutants, and promotes practical solutions for improving the aural landscape.

Westgate’s appointment forms part of the charity’s strategy to not only help more people understand the issues surrounding noise pollution, but also work closer with industry to develop innovative products and solutions for a quieter environment, and push noise pollution higher up the agenda for both government and industry.

Lisa Lavia, managing director of the Noise Abatement Society, commented:

“Noise pollution has long been one of the forgotten pollutants and we are looking forward to working with Westgate to not only dispel some of the myths surrounding noise pollution, but also help people understand that we can all help improve the aural landscape we live in.”

Helen Westgate, director of Westgate Communications, said:

“We are really excited about working with the Noise Abatement Society, which is quietly working hard to help us all live in a safer and healthier aural environment. The charity has a fantastic heritage of campaigning for people’s right to live in a positive sound scape, and we are looking forward to raising awareness of the issues surrounding noise pollution.”

As a result of a number of new B2B and consumer client wins, Westgate has recently strengthened the team with the addition of two new PR consultants, Jade Wilson and Katie Salt.
