Rotterdam is the first municipality in the world to support the Explane app for measuring aircraft noise.
This confirmed alderman Arno Bonte (GroenLinks) last Wednesday in a committee meeting of the Rotterdam city council.
Mayor Aboutaleb and the aldermen think the Explane app is a welcome addition to the DCMR environmental reporting system.
The alderman finds the app user-friendly and works well. “We will actively offer the app to residents of our city.”
Putting results together
Bonte believes that the app can work well in addition to the usual way of reporting from the environment service via the website or by telephone for years. “Afterwards we simply compare the results.”
