About BCAW

If you’re fed up with all those noisy planes taking off and landing at George Best Belfast City Airport, be warned – things will get much worse if the airport’s current noise proposals get the go ahead. If they’re implemented, there will be a massive increase in the permissible levels of aircraft noise, The airport itself says that up to 46,000 people and up to 21 schools could be affected.

BELFAST CITY AIRPORT WATCH is an umbrella residents’ group fighting for robust and properly enforced controls on aircraft noise. Please support our work and help us to campaign effectively on your behalf.

The Environment Minister has said he’s going to hold an inquiry on the noise issue. We hope this will result in tougher noise regulation, but we’ll need your help to achieve this – so please sign up to support Belfast City Airport Watch and to be kept in touch with all the latest developments.
