Abstract: This research is undertaken in an effort to better understand the dynamics of land use management related to military air traffic in Singapore. The main goal of the research is to investigate the magnitude of aircraft noise on residences in the vicinity of Singapore’s airbases and advocate for increased monitoring. It draws lessons from mitigation strategies adopted overseas, reviewing its effectiveness and applicability in Singapore. The noise impact of military air traffic from Tengah Airbase, Sembawang Airbase and Paya Lebar Airbase, will be studied as each airbase represents a unique and distinct profile, and are all in close proximity to residential areas. Unlike other studies which focuses on commercial air traffic, this study will focus on the unique impact of military aviation on adjacent residences. Paya Lebar Airbase is included in the study in an effort to identify areas where the noise exposure is expected to significantly reduce upon its closure in 2030. The study uses a geographic data visualisation framework adapted from the International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAO)’s Noise Exposure Forecast (NEF) method to measure, display and segment areas of high aircraft noise exposure around Singapore’s airbases. A review of surrounding land use is then performed to identify areas of incompatibility in current or future land use, for early mitigation measures to be employed. Tengah is an area that will be increasingly impacted by aircraft noise into the foreseeable future The paper thereafter seeks to identify and recommend good practices in land use planning and management of the built environment around airports that can be applied to drive sustainable development in the surrounding land plots around Tengah. Successful mitigation could lead to synergistic and sustainable development for the optimisation of land use and reduction of externalities.
