Tranquil area threat
There has been much debate in the last year about threats to ‘tranquil areas’ from aircraft noise. The issue figured heavily in the recent flight paths consultation in southeast England.
Many people intuitively feel that the impact of aircraft noise in places that are otherwise tranquil is worse than the impact in places that are not tranquil.
AEF has produced a short paper (Word doc, 2pp) to inform that debate.
