I will be hosting an online Zoom public meeting on the Aircraft Noise consultation on Tuesday, 15 February 2022 at 7:30pm.
What’s this about?
Dublin Airport are building a new runway, and the Dublin Airport Authority has applied for permission to change some of the planning restrictions on how that runway and airport night-time flying will operate.
The Aircraft Noise Competent Authority (ANCA) has examined the proposed changes, and said that these changes would result in an increase in noise. In light of this, they are running a public consultation on its draft recommendations on limiting and reducing the impacts of night-time noise at the Airport.
To register for my public meeting, email my office at Roderic.firstname.lastname@example.org.
More info :
The ANCA’s public consultation will remain open until 28th February 2022. The ANCA’s draft recommendations are:
Introduce a Noise Abatement Objective for the airport, which would see aircraft noise halved by 2050
Give Dublin Airport a Noise Quota System or noise budget for night-time flying btween 11pm and 7am, including banning very loud planes from flying at night
Restrict flights on the new north runway between midnight and 6am
Provide a new insultation grant of up to €20,000 for residents most affected by night-time noise from Dublin Airport and who have not previously availed of a grant
