No recent representations have been received. However in compliance with EU requirements, Southend airport —in common with other major airports—is preparing a noise action plan in consultation with local communities. The development of the action plans provides a key opportunity for local consultation on noise issues.
The airport is currently conducting a public consultation on the draft plan. This consultation closes on 9 February. The airport will then consider consultation responses before submitting a final draft plan to the Secretaries of State for Transport and for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs for consideration for formal adoption.
