Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Helicopter noise has a negative impact on the quality of life for many people. Effected populations are not just those living close to heliports, but include those exposed to noise from helicopters used by emergency services, the military, and commercial companies. One problem identified in the UK is that it is often difficult to complain about helicopter noise, since it is unclear which organisation is responsible for dealing with the complaint. Consequently, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra, UK) has commissioned research to summarise the following: i. the nature and extent of the concern about helicopter noise in the UK. ii. rules and regulations governing operations. iii. existing procedures for handling complaints. This stage of the project will produce a detailed report into the improvement of the management of helicopter noise. Also to be produced is a short non-technical guide including the means of redress for perceived disturbance. This paper will report on the findings of this project. [Work funded by Defra, UK].
