Detail

These reports support the noise analysis in the consultation on the Airport Commission’s shortlisted options for additional airport capacity.

Jacobs Consultancy’s ‘Baseline’ report looks at the expected noise environment over a 60 year period on both a local and national level. It reflects expected developments in traffic growth and technological development against a ‘do minimum’ scenario with no airport expansion.

The ‘Local assessment’ considers noise impacts of schemes on the areas surrounding the expanded airport.

The ‘National assessment’ examines the national level noise impacts of schemes. It considers both their impacts on traffic at the expanded airport and the expected consequences for traffic at other major UK airports.

Large maps included in these documents have been published separately in the ‘Figures’ document.
