STANSTED AIRPORT NOISE ACTION PLAN
Airport operators are required by EU Directive 2002/49/EC and the Environmental Noise (England) Regulations 2006 (as amended) to produce a Noise Action Plan setting out the measures they are taking to manage noise arising from aircraft departures and arrivals and what further steps they will take in future with a view to reducing aircraft noise impacts. Noise Action Plans should be updated every five years. The Government guidance for the production of Noise Action Plans can be found here.
The first Stansted Airport Noise Action Plan was published in June 2011 and can be found here.
Before finalising this Noise Action Plan, a draft Noise Action Plan for Stansted Airport was published for consultation, and for consideration by the Department for Transport (DfT) and the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), as required by law.
