Blueprint for Noise Reduction

17 August 2016

Although Heathrow is now quieter than it’s been at any time since the 1970s, we can do more. We’re continually working with our airlines, regulators and local communities to make the skies around Heathrow quieter for everyone.

Our latest version of our Blueprint for Noise Reduction is a ten-point plan to cut noise, and builds on from our initial Blueprint which was launched in Autumn 2014. All of these steps are linked to actions in our current five-year Noise Action Plan. The Blueprint speeds things up. It challenges us and everyone we work with to be quieter, sooner.

The Blueprint is itself a response to feedback from local communities, and we will continue to work with them to deliver on the steps set out in the Blueprint.
