Noise Performance Meeting
The Noise Performance Meeting comprises of Heathrow representatives along with local authority Environmental Health Officers (EHO) who are responsible for noise related issues within their local borough. The purpose of this quarterly meeting is to work alongside local authority representations, and for the good as a whole to receive and consider technical data from the Noise and Track-Keeping System and related reports. We will share information between the airport and local authorities in an effective, transparent manner, and continue to involve local council representatives to help manage effective ways of mitigating aircraft noise.
Heathrow Airport Consultative Committee
The Heathrow Airport Consultative Committee (HACC) is an independent committee whose role is to foster communication and build understanding between the airport and its users, local authorities and interest groups.
The HACC meets quarterly and meetings are open to the public. You can find more information including meeting minutes on their website here: www.hacc.org.uk
Heathrow Strategic Noise Advisory Group
The Heathrow Strategic Noise Advisory Group (HSNAG, formerly Heathrow Noise Forum) provides a forum for a representative group of stakeholders to collaborate to reduce aircraft noise around Heathrow.
Topics normally fall into one of the categories of aircraft noise management set out in ICAO’s Balanced Approach or one that cuts across these elements (e.g. communication); quieter planes, quieter procedures, land use and mitigation, operating restrictions, communication and other non-acoustic measures.
