Update 17/05/2022: Survey still open but interim report now available here.
Brisbane residents are invited to complete the second BFPCA community survey now.
During December 2020 to January 2021 BFPCA previously sponsored a community survey on the noise pollution impact associated with the operation of Brisbane Airport’s flight paths amongst Brisbane residents. The survey was conducted in the absence of any meaningful assessment of community impact on the part of Airservices or Brisbane Airport Corporation. That initial survey provided a powerful and insightful summary of the community’s ‘lived experience’ at the time, and highlighted the strongly held view that the operation of Brisbane Airport was responsible for an acute and unreasonable noise impact well in excess of levels anticipated by the community.
Since early 2022 Airservices have undertaken a trial of a number of flight path improvements aimed at reducing aircraft noise. In addition, air traffic levels have changed with the gradual removal of COVID travel restrictions. However, Airservices and BAC continue not to engage adequately with the Brisbane community in any credible way to assess the ongoing impact of changes to airport operations.
Consequently, BFPCA has decided to conduct a second survey to assess whether the lived experience of Brisbane residents has changed since early 2021.
Brisbane residents are invited to complete the second survey which can be accessed here.
