Under the requirements of the Environmental Noise Directive 2002/49/EC and the Environmental Noise (England) Regulations 2006, Bristol Airport has produced a Noise Action Plan.
This was adopted by the Secretary of State for Environmental, Food and Rural Affairs in March 2012. The Noise Action Plan aims to build on the existing noise management framework in place at Bristol Airport and, where possible, reduce the effects of noise on surrounding communities.
The Noise Action Plan (2010-2015) can be downloaded here.
Since the current Noise Action Plan was produced in 2009, plans for development of facilities to handle 10 million passengers per annum have been approved, which are subject to planning conditions and obligations relating to noise. New infrastructure, such as the additional aircraft stands constructed in 2012, has been designed to minimise the spread of noise, and initiatives such as the introduction of Area Navigation (RNAV) an aircraft approaches from the south are underway.
The Noise Action Plan has been updated to reflect these changes and to include the results of the latest round of noise mapping. The Draft Noise Action Plan (2014-2018) has been submitted to the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs for adoption and can be downloaded here.
Local residents can register incidents of noise disturbance using our online complaints system. Alternatively, please call 01275 473799 and leave details of your complaint or email noise complaints.
All complaints are investigated and responded to. Statistics relating to noise complaints are reported to the Airport Consultative Committee on a quarterly basis.
