Noise and track keeping system

Noise Insulation Payment Scheme (NIPS)

Our NIPS became operational on 29 February 2016. The purpose of the NIPS is to allow certain developments authorised before 9 July 2009 to benefit early from the Airport's noise insulation schemes. It works by compensating owners and developers for the reasonable incremental costs of supplying and fitting additional noise insulation measures during construction in order to mitigate against noise effects associated with the increase in aircraft movements at the Airport which was permitted in 2009.

Claims for compensation may be made at any time up to and including 28 February 2026. The NIPS can be viewed here. Please refer to this to determine whether you may be eligible (sections 3.1 to 3.3) and if you think you are, please write to us, addressing your letter to the Legal Affairs Manager, London City Airport Limited, City Aviation House, Royal Docks, London E16 9PX (or sending your letter by email to notices@lcy.co.uk). Please include all the information we ask for in section 3.7(a) of the environment-noise-insulation-payments-schemeNIPS. The procedure which we have adopted for claims under the NIPS is set out in section 3.7.

Please read this carefully. It is important, for example, to make a claim before construction begins on the development or the phase of development to which the claim relates.
