A new Australian Noise Exposure Forecast (ANEF) map is being prepared for RAAF Base East Sale. This new forecast will replace the existing 2012 ANEF, and will forecast aircraft flying operations to the year 2035.
Australian Noise Exposure Forecast (ANEF) maps are prepared for aerodromes in Australia and are used by local government when considering planning applications for new development sites in the vicinity of aerodromes. ANEF maps are periodically updated to reflect changes in aerodrome operations including new aircraft and flight paths. The ANEF considers the forecast noise from civilian and military aircraft operations around an aerodrome for a given year. For RAAF Base East Sale, this will be the year 2035.
The Department of Defence is preparing a new Australian Noise Exposure Forecast (ANEF) for RAAF Base East Sale, for the year 2035. A map showing the new draft (in blue) can be downloaded here (pdf) or here (jpeg)
