Annual noise studies
In order to gain an understanding of the levels of aircraft noise in the communities surrounding the airport, Gatwick conducts a programme of community noise monitoring. This involves placing a mobile noise monitor in a location for typically 12 months. The findings are reported to the airports internal noise governance structure.
These reports are written by Gatwick Airport Limited's independent noise consultants. There are two types of report: summary reports which provide a snapshot of the noise climate for the monitoring period and an annual in depth noise study.
