Chief MInister Stanhope has announced the findings of the independent investigation into aircraft noise in Hackett.
The report found that aircraft noise over Hackett was below the guidance on night time noise levels provided by the Australian Standard 2021 and the World Health Organisation ‘Night Noise Guidelines for Europe’.
It also found that some of the noise data recorded by AirServices Australia was overestimated or incorrectly attributed to aircraft.
Mr Stanhope said he hoped the results would be accepted by interested locals.
“The findings of this independent study provide all interested parties with definitive and independently validated data about the level of aircraft noise in the area,” Mr Stanhope said. “The Government welcomes this opportunity to share and review information about the impact of aircraft noise on the Canberra community.”
