BCAW Joins Calls for Fairer Community Contract with Airports

Belfast City Airport Watch has joined a dozen airport community groups across the UK calling for a fairer ‘community contract’ with airports which cause noise pollution problems for local residents. The groups want the contract to ensure:

  • Best practice is not just the norm but is mandatory
  • The noise burden is genuinely reduced over time
  • First-class consultation is not just a nice-to-have, but is compulsory
  • If residents want respite or dispersal, the airport needs to provide it
  • There are meaningful sanctions to ensure compliance by the airport
