A FURTHER SURVEY OF SOME EFFECTS OF AIRCRAFT NOISE IN RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITIES NEAR LONDON (HEATHROW) AIRPORT

The report discusses the results of a survey in which 600 residents of suburban communities near London (Heathrow) airport were interviewed to determine human annoyance reactions to aircraft noise exposure. Questions asked were designed to measure annoyance reactions and the frequency and severity of noise disturbance. The disturbance measurements were found to indicate variation of community noise sensitivity with time of day.
