    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.

    Approximately 9,300 homes fall within the Day Noise Insulation Scheme boundary. These properties are eligible to receive:

    • 50% of the cost of replacement windows and external doors, 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.

    Approximately 37,000 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
