Part 7 Clause 7.9
7.9   Development in areas subject to aircraft noise
(1)  The objectives of this clause are as follows—
(a)  to prevent certain noise sensitive developments from being located near the Gold Coast Airport and its flight paths,
(b)  to assist in minimising the impact of aircraft noise from that airport and its flight paths by requiring appropriate noise attenuation measures in noise sensitive buildings,
(c)  to ensure that land use and development in the vicinity of that airport do not hinder or have any other adverse impacts on the ongoing, safe and efficient operation of that airport.
(2)  This clause applies to development that—
(a)  is on land that—
(i)  is near the Gold Coast Airport, and
(ii)  is in an ANEF contour of 20 or greater, and
(b)  the consent authority considers is likely to be adversely affected by aircraft noise.
(3)  Before determining a development application for development to which this clause applies, the consent authority—
(a)  must consider whether the development will result in an increase in the number of dwellings or people affected by aircraft noise, and
(b)  must consider the location of the development in relation to the criteria set out in Table 2.1 (Building Site Acceptability Based on ANEF Zones) in AS 2021:2015, and
(c)  must be satisfied the development will meet the indoor design sound levels shown in Table 3.3 (Indoor Design Sound Levels for Determination of Aircraft Noise Reduction) in AS 2021:2015.
(4)  In this clause—
ANEF contour means a noise exposure contour shown as an ANEF contour on the Noise Exposure Forecast Contour Map for the Gold Coast Airport prepared by the Department of the Commonwealth responsible for airports.
AS 2021:2015 means AS 2021:2015, Acoustics—Aircraft noise intrusion—Building siting and construction.
