Calculation of the correlation of noise annoyance with different noise metrics

The request was successful.

Dear Civil Aviation Authority,

The CAA/ERCD have issued report CAP 1506 ‘Survey of noise attitudes 2014’ otherwise referred to as SoNA in Feb 2017. This work is complete.

Our FoI request relates to the correlation of noise annoyance with different noise metrics reported in section 5.22 on p40. Although the report is 115 pages long with significant amounts of analysis, this important section is dealt with in less than 1 page without any graphics showing the correlations achieved.

FoI Requests;

1. We request the CAA/ERCD supply all the spreadsheets and graphics used to develop the correlation between the different noise metrics and measured annoyance. This includes any spreadsheets used for initial correlations and those finally used.

2. We request all email communications, notes and meeting minutes about the correlation within the ERCD relating to the correlations found

3. We request all email communications, notes and meeting minutes between the ERCD and the CAA relating to the correlations found

4. We request all email communications, notes and meeting minutes between the ERCD or CAA and the DfT relating to the correlations found

Yours faithfully,
David Gilbert

FOI Requests, Civil Aviation Authority

Dear Mr Gilbert

 

Further to my colleague’s email below, I regret that we are not yet able
to respond to your request.  There is a large volume of material that
needs to be reviewed in order for us to locate and provide the information
you have requested, and unfortunately despite our best efforts we are not
going to be able to complete that task within 20 working days.

 

As your request relates to environmental information, we are obliged to
consider it under the provisions of the Environmental Information
Regulations 2004 (EIR).  Under Regulation 7(1) of the EIR, where a request
is particularly voluminous or complex, a public authority may extend the
time for compliance for making the information available from 20 working
days to 40 working days, and we will need to apply that extension in this
case.

 

We will therefore aim to provide you with a response no later than 29 June
2018.

 

Yours sincerely
