The COVID-19 lockdown created a new kind of environment both in the UK and globally, never experienced before or likely to occur again. A vital and time-critical working group was formed with the aim of gathering crowd-source baseline noise levels and other supporting information across the UK during the lockdown and subsequent recovery period. The acoustic community were mobilised through existing networks engaging private companies, public organisations and academics to gather data in accessible places. In addition, pre-existing on-going measurements from major infrastructure projects, airport, and planning applications was gathered to create the largest possible databank. A website was designed and developed to advertise the project, provide instructions and to formalise the uploading of noise data, observations, and a Soundscape questionnaire. Acoustic related news items in the media were gathered to provide further evidence of the environmental impact of COVID-19. A case study based in the Eastern region will be presented comparing environmental noise during the three lockdowns, as well as traffic flow data. The hope is this will become an annual event to provide a regular snapshot across the country as to the aural environment.
