Short-term Noise Monitor Expression of Interest Open
We are seeking assistance from the community to identify appropriate private properties that are within or close to five potential short-term noise monitor installation zones identified by Airservices through our Short-term noise monitor site feasibility assessment which can be accessed here.
These zones experience regular scheduled passenger aircraft operations, are fully or partly within our modelled N60 or N70 noise contours and are complaint with noise monitoring standards.
We have three noise monitors available to the PIR and are planning to have the short-term noise monitors installed in August for a period of three months. This is consistent with our PIR procedures and will be dependent on identification of appropriate sites and negotiation with property owners.
Recognising community feedback asking that we undertake noise monitoring in more than three locations, we may be able to extend the monitoring period to six months and move the monitor/s to new locations after three months of data capture at initial locations. However, this would extend the overall PIR timeframes by another three months as we are unable to complete our analysis of the noise monitoring data and review of EIA assumptions and findings until the noise monitoring is complete. To vote on this option take our quick poll on the right hand side of this project page.
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 (local time) Friday, 25 June 2021.
