Bristol Airport Publishes Draft Noise Action Plan

Bristol Airport is seeking public feedback on a new Draft Noise Action Plan setting out actions it will take to control, monitor and mitigate noise levels over the next five years.

Under the EU Environmental Noise Directive, airports must update Noise Action Plans every five years. This latest plan is Bristol Airport’s third and covers the period 2019 to 2024.

James Shearman, head, sustainability, Bristol Airport, elaborated, “We are very aware that noise can be disturbing for people living near the airport or under the flight paths used by arriving and departing aircraft.”

He continued the Draft Noise Action Plan sets out how the airport intends to control and, where possible, reduce negative impacts through closer collaboration with airlines and air navigation service providers, improved operating procedures and the implementation of new technology.
