London City Airport Launches Noise Action Plan Consultation


London City Airport has launched a 16 week public consultation on its draft noise action plan. During the consultation period, local communities, councils and other stakeholders will be invited to comment on the airport’s draft plan. The consultation will commence on 28 September 2009 and conclude on 15 January 2010.

The noise action plan has been drafted to manage the issues of noise arising from London City Airport’s operations over the next five years.

Commenting on the launch of the consultation, Richard Gooding OBE, chief executive of London City Airport, said “The airport already has an extensive noise mitigation scheme in place with strict restrictions on operating hours, restricted use of aircraft types and a sound insulation scheme that has the lowest trigger of any airport in the UK. The control measures proposed in the noise action plan will enable the airport to work closer with its neighbouring communities over the next five years.”

London City Airport has drafted its noise action plan in response to a directive published by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). The directive requires airport operators to prepare draft noise action plans designed to manage noise issues arising from aircraft departing from and arriving at airports.

Upon conclusion of the public consultation, London City Airport will collate and consider all responses to the noise action plan.
