Sydney and Adelaide Noise Insulation Programme

The Sydney Airport noise insulation programme was established in 1995 to ameliorate the impact of aircraft noise following the opening of the third runway. Residential properties in the Australian Noise Exposure Index (ANEI) 30 contour and public buildings (schools, churches, day care centres and hospitals) in the ANEI 25 contour were eligible for assistance under the programme.

In 2000, an equivalent programme was established for Adelaide Airport. Residential properties in the ANEI 30 contour and public buildings (schools, churches, day care centres and hospitals) in the ANEI 25 contour were eligible for assistance under the programme.

These programmes are now closed and all eligible residential properties have had the opportunity to be insulated.
