Aircraft noise is common for people who live near airports or underneath flightpaths.
Residents who live in West Torrens, especially those closer to Adelaide Airport, will know that aircraft noise can sometimes cause disruptions.
When managing noise impacts, prevention is always better than cure. Resolving noise problems after they occur may not always be possible and can often be difficult and costly. It is best to anticipate, avoid or manage potential noise impacts as early as possible in the planning process. Council’s Development Officers assess noise impacts and how they could be managed when assessing development applications.
