Noise Action Plan 2019-2023 public consultation

Heathrow is currently consulting on a new Noise Action Plan for the period 2019-2023. There are a number of draft actions within the plan that we are seeking feedback on, many of these have evolved from the previous plan and have been developed alongside community groups through the Heathrow Community Noise Forum, airlines and other stakeholders. You can find relevant background and reference documents for this work below. More information on the current consultation, including how to respond, and a downloadable copy of the plan is available on our consultation website

The Noise Action Plan sets out how Heathrow plans to manage and reduce the impact of aircraft noise over a five-year period. It goes beyond the requirements of European legislation by considering actions which will manage ground and air noise for all those communities affected.
