Aircraft Noise and Residential Property Values: An Artificial Neural Network Approach

The properties of Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) are outlined and shown to discriminate the effect of aircraft noise from other value determinants in a study of residential property values adjacent to Manchester International Airport. The varying effects of noise on different property types and neighbourhoods are identified. The results are contrasted with earlier hedonic regression-based studies.

Density of Residential Land Use and the Impact of Airport Noise

Although communities have shown an increasing concern for the environment, hedonic regression shows little change over time in the relationship of airport noise to the property values of detached dwellings. The effects of noise on the value of condominiums and on the value of vacant land are found to be higher than for detached houses and are statistically significant.
