Noise Monitoring

At Humberside Airport we operate an aircraft noise monitoring system. We have 2 noise monitors. The first monitor is located near the village of Kirmington, 1000 metres from the runway threshold. The second is a mobile monitor, which we use to check noise levels in local villages. We publish regular noise reports from the monitors which are available for download.

For further information on our noise monitoring system, or any aspect of environmental policy please contact us using environment@humbersideairport.com

If you would like to register an Aircraft noise complaint please download our form and once completed either email it to us or post to: Noise Monitoring, Humberside Airport, Grimsby Road, Kirmington, North Lincolnshire DN39 6YH

Further information on aircraft types can be found at www.aircraft-charter-world.com/aircraft_types.htm

We know that aircraft noise measurement can sometimes appear a complex subject. Within the reports that are available to download here, there are two basic types of noise metrics used; those that describe the noise associated with a single aircraft over-flight; and those that reflect a cumulative exposure to a number of flights, over a period of time.

Lmax

Lmax is the maximum sound level recorded during an individual aircraft ‘event’. The Lmax levels generated by each aircraft as it lands or takes-off have been ranked and details of the 30 noisiest arrivals and departures are reported here.

Leq

The equivalent continuous sound level (Leq) represents the average sound energy occurring over a specific period of time. Typically these will be hourly, Daytime (7.00am – 11.00pm), Night-time (11.00pm – 7.00am) or 24-hour.

dB(A)

The A-weighted decibel is designed to reflect the response of the human ear to sound.

Planning Policy Guidance 24

In England, Planning Policy Guidance 24 (PPG24) gives local authorities guidance on how they can use their planning powers to reduce the effects of noise. It sets out what should be taken into account when considering planning applications for developments that could be effected by noise and those that could generate noise.

NEC

When assessing an application for a development near a source of noise, local planning authorities must decide which of the four ‘noise exposure categories’ (NECs) the proposed site falls into. The categories range from ‘A’ where noise does not need to be considered when considering an application for planning permission through to ‘D’ where planning permission should normally be refused.
