Biggin Hill Future

When we asked residents to support longer opening hours, we promised new measures to control noise. We are now asking the Council to approve a Noise Action Plan that includes:

  • A defined noise limit for the first time - half that previously envisaged by the Council in 1997.
  • Online noise monitoring and flight path tracking for every flight, enabling residents to hold the airport to account.
  • Noise measures reviewed every 5 years based on tracking system evidence.

  • Tighter controls on light aircraft - no fly zones and a ban on summer weekend circuit training before 9am and after 5pm.
  • Raising arrival and departure routes to keep aircraft higher wherever possible.
