The latest review by the GGD (Public Health Service) into the disturbance experienced by people living near Eindhoven Airport, is much more expensive than the first review that was carried out. One hundred thousand more, in fact, with a total cost of 249,000 euros, as reported by the Eindhovens Dagblad.
The research, a questionnaire that was distributed amongst the residents of various towns in the region, had also been carried out by the GGD in 2012. The reason for it costing so much more now this time, is because the GGD had to work more hours than had been calculated for at the start, according to the Eindhoven City Council.
The review is being paid for by the Province, Eindhoven and surrounding towns like Eersel, Bergeijk, Oirschot and Veldhoven. Yet, not everyone is paying the same: the Province and Eindhoven City Council are covering the lion’s share of the total costs with 60,000 euros each.
