The Airports Act 1996 requires Perth Airport to review the Australian Noise Exposure Forecast (ANEF) in association with the Master Plan review every 5 years. ANEF noise contours can change between Master Plans as inputs to the modelling process, such as the aircraft mix and the distribution of aircraft movements by runway, flight path and time of day, are updated to reflect new information.
Since the 1984 Master Plan, ANEF noise contours have been produced for Perth Airport which include provision for the development of a new runway.
The interactive display below illustrates the evolution of the Perth Airport ANEF since the 1984 Master Plan. In addition, you can also learn how the current composite ANEF was developed from two Australian Noise Exposure Concepts (ANECs).
