Gold Coast Temporary Noise Monitors

Consultation has concluded

In February 2019, Airservices implemented the Instrument Landing System (ILS) at the Gold Coast.

Advice received from the then Minister for Transport and the Department of Environment in 2015 recommended that Airservices undertake a Post Implementation Review (PIR) of the Environmental Assessment of the Gold Coast Airport ILS, within 12-18 months of implementation.

This advice stated that noise monitoring of 3 months would be adequate to collect sufficient data to support the PIR, including verifying predicted noise levels, identifying non-compliances and informing corrective actions.

We have commenced the PIR using the information gathered during the short term noise monitoring (between October 2019 and February 2020). We undertook consultation to implement a temporary noise monitor in the Miami area (underneath the ILS flight path) to support the PIR. Additionally, we proposed a second temporary noise monitor to provide information from the ILS vectoring corridor (early approach area) further north, where aircraft are operating in the early stages of the ILS approach.

The second temporary noise monitor was used to provide additional information to the community on ILS operations in the early approach area.

    A Summary of Feedback for the community consultation on the Gold Coast Temporary Noise Monitors for the Instrument Landing System (ILS) Post Implementation Review (PIR) is now available.

    The Summary also includes the preferred zone for the installation of the second Temporary Noise Monitor, which will be installed north of Miami to provide information to the community on ILS operations in the vectoring and early approach area.

    The Temporary Noise Monitors will be installed on 28 October 2019.

    We are seeking feedback from community members with local knowledge of potential sources of noise to be considered by Airservices in determining the location of the additional Temporary Noise Monitor in the ILS vectoring and early approach area.

    Feedback and information from local community members will supplement the technical data that we traditionally use to inform placement of noise monitors and closes 1 October 2019.

    You can view proposed zones for the temporary noise monitors on our 'Map of Proposed Zones'.

    You can provide feedback on noise sources to Airservices using the 'Submit your Feedback' form.

    We will release A Summary of Feedback report and confirm the location zone for the second TMN (vectoring and early approach area) prior to installation of the Temporary Noise Monitors.
