NOISE MITIGATION/LAND USE PLANNING PROGRAM INFORMATION
The following information was provided by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore.

In Singapore, land use planning around airports is based on the noise exposure forecast (NEF) contours. Land use planning comes under the purview of our Urban Redevelopment Authority, in consultation with the National Environment Agency, who advises on the technical requirements.

The following land use planning guidelines are adopted around civilian airports and military airbases:

(a) The NEF 35 noise contour is the limit for residential developments.

(b) Sites in areas between NEF 35 and NEF 40 noise contours that have already been zoned for residential use shall be tendered out for private residential developments. This recognizes the fact that private residential developments are normally designed with air-conditioning systems, which will help to maintain acceptable indoor noise levels.

NOISE MONITORING SYSTEM
The airport does not have a noise monitoring system and there are plans to install one in the near future.

FLIGHT TRACK MONITORING SYSTEM - NONE

NOISE LEVEL LIMITS - NONE

CHAPTER 2 RESTRICTIONS
