Next Steps for UK Aviation Acoustics Industry following the Airports Commission’s Final Report
Tuesday 26 January 2016
London South Bank University
In July 2015 the Airports Commission published its Final Report, setting out recommendations to Government for expanding aviation capacity in the UK. This is a landmark report and the work presented has changed the landscape for assessing aviation noise in the UK.
The report includes issues such as noise envelopes, metrics, respite, monetization, noise levies, extensive compensation/ insulation schemes, night noise curfew, a UK independent aviation noise authority, and community engagement board. Whether you agree or disagree with the AC’s recommendations, we should ask the question: how should the acoustics industry develop to reflect this important report?
At this Institute of Acoustics event, members of the aviation acoustics industry will review the key messages and consider their implications.
Here at Anderson Acoustics, we are experts in the business of sustainable airport noise management and strategy. Nicole Porter will chair the event and Andy Knowles will present on the subject of aviation noise metrics.
