Noise Action Plan


The Noise Action Plan sets out how Heathrow plans to manage and reduce the impact of aircraft noise over a five-year period from 2019-2023. It goes beyond the requirements of European legislation by considering actions which will manage ground and air noise for all those communities affected. You can download the Plan and supporting documents below:
