An analysis of the noise complaints you've made so far from April 2022 up to January 2023. More to come later in 2023 as the complaints continue!
Some of you have done our survey (here) aimed at finding out what you think of Newcastle Airport. This is the report of what you've told us so far
In October 2022, a meeting of a Group, hosted by the Airport, took place to look at noise issues. It was the second meeting since the pandemic sgtarted in 2019. These are ANAG's notes on the meeting.

July 2022: With the noise getting worse and the number of complaints and complainants increasing, we have sent a list of requests for information and clarification to the Airport

This is the October 2019 briefing. The Airport got upset and asked us to take down the August briefing because they said it had inaccuracies and privileged information. The Airport refused to tell us what it thinks was wrong with it, in spite of us asking twice, so we had to guess. We replaced the original briefing with this one.
