Noise Action Plan

Southampton Airport is required to develop and maintain and action plan designed to manage noise issues and effects arising from aircraft arriving and departing the airport, including noise mitigation measures where necessary.

Action Plans are a legal requirement under Directive 2002/49/EC relating to the Assessment and Management of Environmental Noise. This Directive is commonly referred to as the Environmental Noise Directive or END4 and the requirements are laid down by DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs)
