Noise pollution is genuine threat to human health and the quality of life and presents one of serious factors that local agencies and state authorities have to consider in development planning. Noise dispersion modeling can be helpful in the planning and decision making processes for reducing the noise pollution. Noise dispersion models are used to assess and monitor the influence of the noise effects and for land-use planning as one of the method of effective and economic noise control. In this paper Noise dispersion model has been developed using the possibilities of low costs CUSTIC 3.2, Noise Pollution Modelling Software, produced by the Spanish company Canarina, and according to noise level measurements in the central part of Stip, in Eastern Macedonia that is typical, and thus representative, of most smaller urban areas in this region.
