Bristol Airport’s Noise Action Plan formally adopted by DEFRA
Created: 25th Mar 2019
Bristol Airport’s Noise action Plan has been formally adopted by the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA).
Noise Action Plans set out how airports plan, manage and where possible reduce the adverse effects of aviation noise. Under the EU Environmental Noise Directive they must be updated every five years.
This latest plan is the third produced by Bristol Airport and covers the period 2019 to 2024. Consultation on the plan took place between July and October last year, and the final publication has been updated based on feedback received.
James Shearman, Head of Sustainability at Bristol Airport, said:
“The stretching targets in this Noise Action Plan demonstrate we take our responsibility seriously when it comes to managing the impacts of aviation noise through closer collaboration with airlines and air navigation services providers, improved operating procedures and implementation of new technology.”
