Aircraft Noise - How Can we Build Community Tolerance?

12 October 2017

No.4 Hamilton Place, London


09:00 - 17:00

New aircraft are much quieter than their predecessors but people living near airports still object to the noise they make. The recent government decision to support the development of a third runway at Heathrow included several operational conditions aimed at reducing the noise impact on communities and the government is also consulting the public on airspace design with a particular emphasis on how noise can be minimised.

This one-day conference focusses on aircraft noise and the challenge of getting community engagement, understanding and ultimately tolerance at a time of growing and modernised airspace operation near our busiest airports.

The conference will look at the issue from the recipients’ perspective, hear of the latest research, share experience from the consultative front-line and seek a better understanding of the issues and potential mitigating measures.

This event should provide a valuable and timely opportunity for all parts of the aviation industry, local authorities and community groups together with Government, regulators and academics with interest in noise.
