Plans & Annual Reports
Noise Management Plan
The five-year noise management plan for YVR provides an overview of the Vancouver Airport Authority's Aeronautical Noise Management Program. The noise management plan also describes the planned initiatives and reflects the underlying direction of the YVR Aeronautical Noise Management Program over the five-year period. Progression on the various initiatives is summarized in annual noise management reports.
During the preparation of the 2014-2018 YVR Noise Management Plan, the Airport Authority retained Airbiz to undertake a review of noise management programs worldwide in an effort to identify best practices. Information from this review will continue to help guide work on the initiatives identified in the 2014-2018 YVR Noise Management Plan.
Each year, the Airport Authority publishes a noise management report which outlines what we’re doing to help mitigate noise.
This annual noise report provides a summary of noise management activities and initiatives at YVR. It also contains information on annual number of operations, data collected by the noise monitoring terminal network, and a summary of complaints.
