MOD Report


Date Reason for notification
4-7 October 2021 Explosions may be noticed
8-10 October 2021 Nothing to report


MOD Shoeburyness – Exceptional Activity: October 2021


This is to notify you of a potential increase in noise levels during an activity that is taking place between 4 and 29 October 2021 at the Ministry of Defence (MOD) Test and Evaluation Range at Shoeburyness. These noise levels may exceed the site’s usual noise limit of 125 decibels (dB) – noise monitoring will be in place during this period.


QinetiQ operates 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 125dB might be exceeded, the trial may be postponed until more favourable conditions allow. However, it is not always possible to delay and this particular trial is allowed to proceed as long as the statutory noise limit of 140dB will not be breached.


If you have any concerns about Range activity, you can contact the Careline team on freephone 0800 0560108.
