Success strategies for noise mitigation in airport areas: Communication and two-way dialogue with communities

Success strategies for noise mitigation in airport areas: Communication and two-way dialogue with communities

December 19, 2019

Noise management in airport areas can only be successful with the presence and dialogue between parties that are involved in creating the noise, but also those who can hear it. The ANIMA community engagement event, organised in Kranj, Slovenia aimed to put all relevant parties in the same room and see how they can improve and develop the transparency and efficiency of their communication. The event saw the presence of the airport sector (Fraport Slovenija), Air Navigation Service Providers (Slovenia Control), the Civil Aviation Agency, institutional bodies (Ministry of Infrastructure, Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning, Institute of Occupational Safety, National Institute of Public Health), and the local communities (City Municipality of Kranj and residents’ representatives). Kranj: Local authorities don’t often know what the airport is doing Kranj is the third largest city in Slovenia and is only 10 kilometres away from Ljubljana Airport, hence aircraft noise has an impact on those who live under flight paths. While collaborative decision-making groups for the development of common noise policies already existed, the local authorities and communities were often left out from the discussions, and decisions have been taken without informing them. For example, in 2013 there was a unilateral change of […]

The ANIMA project has reached the halfway point, with numerous results materialising. The project partners have finished assessing noise management practices by carrying out: A survey of regulations implementation and guidance across European Airports An in-depth study on the concept of annoyance and critical analysis of past interventions to lower it A critical review of noise metrics and of their usage for communication and engagement A critical review of the health impact of aviation noise beyond the WHO report A review of the policies and practices in other noise-affected sectors and their potential application to aviation. Additionally, ANIMA has also been carrying out research on annoyance and quality of life. The following has been performed: A review of indicators used to define quality of life A review of methods to engage with communities in order to test the impact of a communication campaign A review of methodologies for noise-induced awakening and derivation of indicators for night noise protection zones development of AnimaApp, which is a mobile application to capture people’s reactions and responses to aviation noise; The results are available on the ANIMA website along with user-friendly summaries. Coming Up Other important work discussed and carried out refers to the […]

Horizon 2020-funded aviation noise research projects at Aeroacoustics 2019

May 27, 2019

The ANIMA project was part of Aeroacoustics 2019 held in Delft, the Netherlands, between 20 and 23 May. The ARC (Airport Regions Conference) team, showcased ten Horizon 2020 aviation noise research projects supported by INEA (the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency) aimed at improving quality of life of EU citizens.  The ANIMA stand at the Aeroacoustics 2019 exhibition looked at key aspects from these ten European projects: JERONIMO (Jet Noise of High Bypass Ratio Engine: Installation, Advanced Modelling and Mitigation) ENOVAL (ENgine mOdule VALidators) AFLONEXT (Active Flow Loads & Noise control on next-generation wing) TurboNoiseBB ARTEM (Aircraft noise Reduction Technologies and related Environmental iMpact) Aerialist (AdvancEd aircRaft noIse AlLeviation deviceS using meTamaterials) ICARe (International Cooperation in Aviation Research) IMAGE (Innovation Methodologies and technologies for reducing Aircraft noise Generation and Emission) RUMBLE (RegUlation and norm for low sonic Boom LEvels) ANIMA (Aviation Noise Impact Management through Novel Approaches) Read here about the 10 projects in detail. About Aeroacoustics Aeroacoustics 2019 (AIAA/CEAS Aeroacoustics Conference) is an international forum for the field of aeroacoustics, which gathers scientists and engineers from industry, government and academia to exchange knowledge and results of current studies and to discuss directions for future research. This year, the conference […]
