Gold Coast Temporary Noise Monitors

23 October 2019

A Summary of Feedback for the community consultation on the Gold Coast Temporary Noise Monitors for the Instrument Landing System (ILS) Post Implementation Review (PIR) is now available on Airservices Engage Airservices Temporary Noise Monitor project page.

The Summary also includes the preferred zone for the installation of the second Temporary Noise Monitor, which will be installed north of Miami to provide information to the community on ILS operations in the vectoring and early approach area.

The Temporary Noise Monitors will be installed on 28 October 2019.

Consultation on the Gold Coast Temporary Noise Monitors has now closed.

A Summary of Feedback will be available shortly on the Engage Airservices site. We will also provide confirmation of which zone was determined for placement of the Temporary Noise Monitors, and how to access data from the noise monitors.

We would like to thank interested community members who downloaded and viewed information through the Engage Airservices site.

In February 2019, Airservices implemented the Instrument Landing System (ILS) at the Gold Coast.

Advice received from the then Minister for Transport and the Department of Environment in 2015 recommended that Airservices undertake a Post Implementation Review (PIR) of the Environmental Assessment of the Gold Coast Airport ILS, within 12-18 months of implementation.

This advice stated that noise monitoring of 3 months would be adequate to collect sufficient data to support the PIR, including verifying predicted noise levels, identifying non-compliances and informing corrective actions.

We will be undertaking a PIR for the Gold Coast ILS and will implement a temporary noise monitor in the Miami area (underneath the ILS flight path) to support the PIR. Additionally, we are proposing a second temporary noise monitor which will provide information from the ILS vectoring corridor/early approach area further north, where aircraft will be in the early stages of the ILS approach.

The second temporary noise monitor will be used to provide additional information to the community on ILS operations in the vectoring corridor/early approach area.

Due to the variable position of overflights in this area, it is unlikely that noise monitoring in this area will be utilised to validate noise levels.


We are seeking feedback from community members with local knowledge of potential sources of noise to be considered by Airservices in determining the location of the additional Temporary Noise Monitor in the ILS vectoring and early approach area.

Feedback and information from local community members will supplement the technical data that we traditionally use to inform placement of noise monitors and closes 1 October 2019.
