Author(s): Dance Stephen, Gomez-Agustina Luis

University, London SE1 0AA\nLondon now has only one commercial heliport, London Battersea Heliport. As such the three adjacent Local Authorities jointly formed the Heliport Consultative Committee which decided to commission a noise survey. The noise survey was developed to establish a new baseline for the effect of operation of the heliport on local residents. Long term noise monitoring was undertaken in each of the three boroughs to establish the internal and external noise levels both along the river Thames, the main flight path, and away from the heliport. The key parameters measured were LAeq, 16 hours, LA90, 16 hours and LAmax,f over a five month period during the spring and summer of 2017. The data collected was then compared to the new English ProPG: Planning and Noise guidance, BS8233:2014, BS4142:2014, Aviation Framework Policy and the local planning conditions for the heliport. The paper will report on the results of the objective monitoring, draw conclusion and propose solutions. Another paper will report on the subjective survey of the local residents.\n
