Airport wants noise feedback
PUBLISHED: 13:00 28 August 2018
Bristol Airport is seeking feedback to control noise levels at the site for the next five years.
It has produced a draft noise plan which stated ‘no people lie within the highest noise bands assessed’ in 2016 during the day, evening or night periods, which was also the case in 2011.
Head of sustainability at the airport, James Shearman, said: “We are very aware noise can be disturbing for people living near the airport or under the flight paths used by arriving and departing aircraft.
“Reducing our noise impact is a true team effort, we work with the airlines which operate at Bristol and our local air traffic control team to monitor performance and focus on flying quieter and more efficiently.”
To respond, email NAP2018@bristolairport.com or write to Noise Action Plan Consultation, Bristol Airport, BS48 3DY by October 2.
