New noise respite research published

16 February 2018

The concept of providing respite from aircraft noise has taken on increasing importance in recent years, as a useful and effective strategy for providing a break from aviation noise. However, there are limited guidelines to explain what respite from aircraft noise means and how it should be implemented.

Heathrow identified a need to improve its understanding of respite from aviation noise and has commissioned new research to better understand the key characteristics of an effective respite strategy for the airport and its noise affected communities.

The results of the latest research have now been published along with an animation which provides an overview of the learning gathered and the story so far, from the formation of the Respite Working Group to the most recently published research work.
