Assistance in the soundproofing of a dwelling near an airport

Verified 13 janvier 2020 - Directorate for Legal and Administrative Information (Prime Minister)

Residents of the 9 main airports in France can receive financial assistance to soundproof their accommodation (apartment or house). This aid is paid by the airport operator within certain limits. The aid shall be paid after the work has been carried out and on an invoice to be sent to the airport operator.

If you live close to an airport, the airport operator can provide you with financial assistance to sound-proof your accommodation (apartment or house).

The airport must be affected by a noise plan (the 9 main airports in France are).

The noise disturbance plan (PGS) identifies the actual discomfort experienced around the airport by identifying 3 zones (I, II, III). Zone I corresponds to the highest noise level.

The aid is used to finance the sound study of your home and the construction of insulation works.

This assistance is granted within certain ceilings depending on whether you live in an apartment or a house.

You can collect this assistance if you live near the following airports:

  • Basel-Mulhouse
  • Bordeaux-Mérignac
  • Lyon-Saint-Exupéry
  • Marseille-Provence
  • Mulhouse-Basel
  • Nantes-Atlantique
  • Nice-Côte d'Azur
  • Paris Charles-de-Gaulle and Paris-Orly
  • Toulouse-Blagnac

Aid is granted within certain ceilings depending on whether you live in an apartment or a house.

If your application is accepted, the operator notifies you by registered letter with notice of receipt that you can have an acoustic study done of your accommodation.

You must have an acoustic study done by an acoustic specialist or specialized study office. A list shall be provided in the annex to the decision to award the aid submitted by the airport operator.

This professional must carry out an inventory of your accommodation and define the objectives and solutions to be implemented.

He then prepares a report with an estimate of the cost of the work that he gives you.

The realization of this study is, in a 1to time, at your expense. To be reimbursed, you must send the airport operator:

  • a copy of the professional's report
  • and the invoice corresponding to the acoustic diagnosis made.

This must be done by registered letter with notice of receipt.

Once you have the acoustic diagnosis, you can request a work estimate from the company of your choice. This estimate shall be sent by registered letter with notice of receipt to the airport operator.

Once the estimate has been submitted, the request for aid is examined by the advisory commission for the assistance of local residents. She gives an opinion on:

  • the geographical location of the accommodation (GSP area)
  • and the intensity of the noise nuisances.

The airport operator shall then give its agreement to the allocation of the aid. This decision shall be notified to you by mail.

Once you have received the letter awarding you the help, you must have the work done within a maximum of 2 years.

You will receive financial assistance:

  • at the completion of all work,
  • and after sending all invoices to the airport operator by registered letter with notice of receipt.
