We have published our report on the future of aviation noise management

This contains our recommendations for how aviation noise can be managed going forward, as well as how the framework of regulation should evolve. We have also published supporting documents.

We have also published our Corporate Strategy 2021-2024, setting out how we will work towards our vision, and deliver on our ambitions over the coming three years.

Improving public confidence and trust in the management of aviation noise

We are a non-statutory, advisory body created to provide independent, impartial advice to government, regulators and the UK aviation industry. We use this website to update on our work, publish our guidance and reports, and provide simple, easy-to-understand information about how aviation noise can be measured, mitigated and managed.

In June 2020, we produced a progress report on our first Corporate Strategy, which sets out what we want to achieve in our first two years.

In July 2020 we published A review of aviation noise metrics and measurement and a Toolkit for consulting on airspace change. 

In September 2020, we published a review of the links between aviation noise and public health. In October 2020, we published a survey of people’s experiences of aviation noise during the lockdown period, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In December 2020 we published best practice for airports on engaging with communities.

In February 2021, we published a review of airport noise insulation schemes.

In March 2021, we published our report on the future of aviation noise management as well as our next Corporate Strategy for the coming three years.

In June 2021, we published our plans for the next Aviation Noise Attitudes Survey (ANAS), and a report produced by the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) along with a number of supporting documents.
