The aims of the Forum are to:

Improve understanding of members on Heathrow’s operations and airspace issues;
Seek input from members to inform the communications approach to trials and public consultations regarding potential airspace changes;
Build trust in the data through members involvement in the independent verification of the data and analysis of data.
There is a public gallery at each of the meetings where members of the public are welcome to come and observe. Please pre-register if you would like to attend by emailing with ‘Heathrow Community Noise Forum attendance’ in the subject heading.
