Queenstown Airport has announced plans to provide home owners near the growing airport with financial assistance to help them insulate their homes from aircraft noise.

The plan will see 150 home owners receive the assistance in the wake of the ratification of a new noise management plan by the airport. The plan details how the airport will liaise with the community and assist the homeowners with acoustic insulation and mechanical ventilation costs to ensure their inside noise remains within acceptable levels.

“We are offering to pay the full costs of insulation and ventilation in existing homes for those living closest to the airport in what we refer to as the inner noise sector,” QAC CEO Scott Paterson said in a statement. “For those living further out in the mid noise sector, we will cover 75 per cent of the costs of ventilation.”
