Project deliverable Open Access
This document is the public version of deliverable 3.1 of the ANIMA project. It encompasses a critical review to establish the relevant indicators to be studied in WP3 on annoyance and residential quality of life and to inform WP2 'case studies' and WP4 'tool development' on the state-of-art related to quality of life (QoL). This task includes:
A comparison of the available research on QoL to the present day practice of three European airports highlighted a lack of a systematic approach. However, the airports do acknowledge the need for such an approach as the historic focus on noise no longer suffices for getting and maintaining a ‘license to operate’. An audit framework was created to allow airports to handle the broad topic of QoL in a more coherent, meaningful manner.
