3/15/99 London City Airport - There is to be a new, more comprehensive, Noise Management Scheme. A draft of this was submitted in December 1998 for the approval of the London Borough of Newham (LBN) as the local planning authority. The Airport has undertaken to start to implement the scheme within one month of its acceptance by the LBN. The scheme was considered by the Consultative Committee at its meeting on 6th January 1999. They agreed to inform the Council that they have no observations to offer on the draft.

The new Scheme will include a number of new features:

  • A new combined noise monitoring and track keeping system. This will link the present noise monitoring system with the Airport's radar facilities. It will allow deviations from standard routes used by aircraft to be identified and provide a continued facility for the verification of the noise contours. This is to be installed within nine months from the date on which the LBN approves the new Noise Management Scheme.
  • The introduction of additional fixed power supplies for aircraft on the apron thus obviating the use auxiliary power units unless it can be demonstrated to the local planning authority that this is operationally necessary.
  • A scheme aimed at minimising the noise impact of engine running on the ground in connection with routine daily aircraft operations. This will complement the new arrangements to restrict ground running for test or maintenance purposes (see below).
  • A system of operational and financial incentives and/or penalties aimed at securing compliance with the various measures for the control of noise and good track keeping.
  • The continued maintenance of a record of the numbers and types of aircraft which land and take off at the Airport every day.
  • Regular meetings with the local planning authority, the Airport Consultative Committee (ACC) and other bodies for the review of the scheme. The ACC will receive reports on the operation of the Noise Management Scheme at least twice a year.

3/01/99 As of January 1, 1999 the Noise Tax which was already in effect at the airports below is now in the framework of the introduction of ecological taxes, under a general tax on polluting activities (GTPA) in France. Please see the specific formulas and tax rate for under the noise surcharge information for each airport. In summary, the rate at all airports listed below is almost double from the old unit rate. This tax is in addition to the landing fee which is also based on acoustic group as defined by the delta from the limit.
