People living in the shadows of Heathrow Airport are being offered soundproofing as part of its Quieter Homes Scheme this month.
A total of 708 homes have been identified as being most affected by noise from aircraft and residents from those houses will now be able to apply for soundproofing insulation.
So far, 474 homes have been installed with insulation during a pilot scheme which launched in 2014 across three zones around Heathrow.
Sustainability director at Heathrow Airport, Matt Gorman, says: "Our noise insulation programmes are an essential part of our efforts to become a better, quieter neighbour.
"That is why - in addition to incentivising airlines to use the quietest planes and operate them as quietly as possible – we are re-opening our Quieter Homes Scheme.
"We look forward to working closely with the people and communities around us to help improve their quality of life."
Am I eligible for the scheme?
Those eligible for the scheme should already have been advised as to how to apply.
Areas covered include North Feltham , Bedfont , Cranford , Colnbrook, Harmondsworth and Stanwell North and once registered, residents will be contacted to arrange a time to carry out a noise assessment free of charge.
Heathrow Airport estimate that the assessment and fitting of the soundproofing insulation may take up to four years to complete.
As part of the airport's third runway commitment of £700 million of noise insulation covering 160,000 homes, Heathrow plans to roll out further noise insulations programmes over the coming years.
