As part of the project Caulmert are to undertake a site reconnaissance visit to assess the airfield layout and determine the nearest noise sensitive receptors. Caulmert’s noise expert will then complete a background noise monitoring survey, comprising attended background noise measurements following the methodology detailed in BS4142:1997 – Method for rating industrial noise affecting mixed residential and industrial areas. A noise assessment report will then be produced, which will include details regarding the noise impact of the airfield and advice regarding noise mitigation measures, should they be required.
