Mayor Patrick Johnstone
I live in ____________________ area, and can tell you that the number one reason why many people live here is because it is a Quiet neighbourhood, and always has been. This looks set to change pretty dramatically with flights overhead about every 4.5 mins (based on NAVCANADA data) at 60db. This will be a real concern locally when people are woken up (literally) to the sound of airplanes overhead.
If you don’t know what 60db sounds like I encourage you to download an app and use a stereo to give yourself a sense. It is loud. Especially in contrast to what is today which is 40db or so.
Many well cited studies to indicate this will diminish health outcomes as well as eventually and possibly land values along these routes. See here: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/?term=%22Noise/adverse+effects%22%5BMAJR%5D+aircraft
In children, chronic aircraft noise exposure impairs reading comprehension and long-term memory and may be associated with increased blood pressure. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/12381830_Noise_and_Health_in_the_Urban_Environment
Of course I understand that there is a need for an airport, but I would say that anyone buying a house in areas associated with this noise today, knows what they are getting into and has made that part of their purchase decision. I certainly did when I bought here in 2015. I specifically sought a home in our quiet neighbourhood.
