Independent Commission on Civil Aviation Noise (ICCAN)
While nearly two-fifths of people interviewed said that they would mind if aircraft noise returned to pre-lockdown levels, just under half indicated that they would not.
ICCAN highlights how there is limited quality evidence on how aviation noise impacts someone’s quality of life, health and wellbeing.
Aviation noise impacts the lives of thousands of people living near airports or under flightpaths across the UK every day.
ICCAN Head Commissioner, Rob Light, details how the way noise is managed should be approached as aviation begins to recover.
As aviation experiences an all-time low, ICCAN has proposed to use the unique opportunity to address aviation noise once services begin to increase post COVID-19.
ICCAN will work with NatCen to develop a new attitudinal noise survey by the end of September 2020, with the first to be conducted before the end of 2021.
Following its review of the 2014 Survey of Noise Attitudes, ICCAN has recommended that new research is undertaken to examine attitudes to aviation noise.
