London City Airport has regular communication and contact with local people through a wide variety of channels.
These channels include:
The LCACC provides a forum to monitor and discuss all aspects of the operation and development of the Airport, and especially its impact on, and opportunities for, people living and working in the surrounding area. The committee is made up of a balance of representatives from local authorities, public bodies, local residents and Airport users. Meetings are held quarterly and the committee’s agendas and minutes are published on the committee website. Click here to visit the LCACC website www.lcacc.org.
Runway News provides information on Airport Operations, Development and Community Programmes. It is distributed to 33,000 local homes quarterly and available online. Click here to view publications
The ATF was created in 1999 in response to Government guidelines set out in the 1998 White Paper - ‘A New Deal for Transport – Better for Everyone’. It is designed to improve and sustain access to the Airport. The Airport Surface Access Strategy, developed and implemented in conjunction with the ATF, details short and long term plans to increase the use of public transport by staff and passengers.
In 2009, London City Airport committed to a range of further measures to reduce the environmental impact of the Airport’s operation through its Section 106 Planning Agreement. The new London City Airport Travel Plan forms one of these measures and is currently in draft form awaiting approval by the London Borough of Newham.
