In addition to our six fixed noise monitors, from time to time we carry out studies of aircraft noise using Portable Noise Monitors. These are highly accurate, calibrated pieces of equipment which link to our noise and track-keeping system to provide detailed information on noise levels in neighbouring communities.
Our Portable Noise Monitor Deployment Policy explains how we monitor noise, how you can request for a portable noise monitor to be deployed in your area and how any data collected will be analysed and reported.
You can also read the reports which accompany our most recent studies using portable noise monitors
For this report, you may find it useful to also take a look at our Focus on Barston document, which looks at our operations and how they specifically impact Barston.
