Our monitors capture all noise in the vicinity for a three month period, and by analysing the actual tracks of Stansted’s aircraft movements for that same period, we can identify the noise that relates to a Stansted aircraft movement and noise that does not. All this work is carried out by an independent noise consultant who compile a report on the findings. These mobile noise monitor reports are given to the relevant Council for each area, as well as the local MP. London Stansted has a rolling program of sites where the monitors are placed and this enables us to establish trends in noise levels within the local community.
