Noise insulation schemes

We developed our noise insulation schemes to provide practical assistance to those local residents experiencing the highest levels of aircraft noise.

Day Noise Insulation Scheme

The Day Noise Insulation Scheme is designed to protect those homes exposed to the aircraft noise in the day, including in the early morning arrival period before 6am.

About 8,500 homes fall within the Day Noise Insulation Scheme boundary. These properties are eligible to receive:

  • 50% of the cost of replacement windows, or free secondary-glazing
  • free loft insulation and ventilation

Night Noise Insulation Scheme

The Night Noise Insulation Scheme is designed to address the impact of night flights on local residents. The scheme boundary is based on the footprint of the noisiest planes that operate between 11:30pm and 6am.

About 41,000 homes fall within the Night Noise Insulation Scheme boundary. These properties are eligible to receive:

  • 50% of the cost of replacement bedroom or bedsitting room windows, or free secondary-glazing of bedroom or bedsitting room windows
  • free loft insulation and ventilation

Quieter Homes Scheme

The Quieter Homes Scheme covers approximately 1,200 homes located close to Heathrow which experience the highest level of aircraft noise.
