It is our conviction that communities around airports are part of the solution of noise issues. Well-informed development of local noise legislation can contribute to land use compatibility. Engagement of the communities with the airport noise management is a good practice that should be pursued. At ANOTEC we can support communities with our thorough knowledge of aircraft noise and our understanding of the conflicting interests between stakeholders can help to resolve unwanted situations. In fact, our IBANET noise and track monitoring system was developed to address the need for information of communities around some airports. Apart from IBANET we have a range of tools available to support communities in assessing their noise situation, developing local noise legislation, etc.
