Post Implementation Review Commences

You can participate in the PIR by:

  1. Commenting on the draft Terms of Reference (ToR)
  2. Submitting an Expression of Interest for a short term noise monitor to be installed on your property

Public Comment Period on draft Terms of Reference

The draft ToR describes the activities we will undertake for the PIR. This includes:

  1. Desktop noise modelling comparing the assumptions and findings of the EIA with actual aircraft movement data
  2. On-ground short-term noise monitoring to support the desk-top review and provide actual aircraft noise data within the N60 noise contours
  3. Review of community information regarding forecast aircraft noise and operational impacts on community against actual aircraft movement data, and provision of updated information where required
  4. Consideration of stakeholder feedback regarding the safety, operational management, efficiency and community noise impacts of the flight paths, including community suggested alternatives to flight paths and/or procedures.

The draft ToR are available for public comment for 6 weeks, from:

Friday 27 November 2020 to Sunday 10 January 2021 (midnight AEDT).

You can access a copy of the draft ToR here or download it from the Resources tab.

Short-Term Noise Monitoring

We are seeking assistance from the community to identify appropriate private properties that are within or close to the three potential short-term noise monitor installation zones identified by Airservices.

These three zones experience regular aircraft traffic, are relatively close to the airport and, in our modelling, were in the noise contours forecast to experience greater than ten 60 decibel (dB(A)) noise events per day.

We are planning to have the short-term noise monitors installed before Christmas to commence data capture during the holiday period when aircraft operations are expected to increase. This will be dependent on identification of appropriate sites and negotiation with property owners.

Further information about short-term noise monitors and site suitability is provided in our fact sheet here.

You can submit your expression of interest for hosting a short-term noise monitor by completing our short survey here.

The survey asks for your address, specific site information and local information you believe may be relevant regarding site suitability.

Expressions of Interest close at 5pm (AEDT) Wednesday 9 December 2020.

If you would like to promote the PIR and/or the short-term noise monitoring activities, we have provided a social media tile here and here for sharing through your local community groups.

Airservices has been progressing the recommended actions identified through the Post Implementation Review (PIR). The status of each recommended action is available to view here

We are progressing the recommended actions for community and industry suggested flight path alternatives as two separate packages of work.

A new project page has been created on Engage Airservices to provide you with ongoing updates on the delivery of these two packages of work. Please subscribe to this new page to continue receiving updates on this project.
