MOD Pendine - exceptional activity alert

QinetiQ would like to notify you of the potential increase in noise levels during an activity that is taking place during the week commencing 25 April 2022 at the Ministry of Defence (MOD) Test and Evaluation Range at Pendine. This activity is being carried out to support the safety of our Armed Forces and will take the form of approximately 1 to 2 explosions per day. These noise levels may exceed the site's usual noise limit of 135 decibels (dB) at the Range boundary and noise monitoring will be in place during this period.

QinetiQ operate the facility on behalf of the MOD, and as part of the work to plan and manage explosive trials carry out acoustic forecasting, modelling and/or subsequent test shots. If it is assessed that the upper range limit of 135 dB might be exceeded, the trial may be postponed until more favourable conditions allow. However it is not always possible to delay and the trial will be allowed to proceed as long as the statutory noise limit of 140dB at the Range boundary will not be breached.

QinetiQ operates an advance alert service to inform the local community about forthcoming range activity. Registration is free via QinetiQ's MOD Pendine  Community Website and the QinetiQ Careline team can be contacted via Freephone telephone on 0800 0921345.
