Liverpool John Lennon Airport recognises that in operating a successful airport there will inevitably be some environmental impact upon individuals, communities and businesses close to the Airport and its flight paths. Clearly, the operation and development of an airport requires a careful balance, taking account of economic, social and environmental effects.
Liverpool John Lennon Airport is committed to sustainable growth - seeking to minimise and mitigate environmental effects (where technically feasible and economically reasonable or practicable).
Noise monitoring and track keeping
The airport company have installed a Noise Monitoring and Track Keeping System that enables the airport to monitor the noise level of each aircraft as it lands and takes off and also record the path the aircraft are taking as they approach and depart the airport.
This enables us to report accurately the altitude, position, aircraft type and noise generated by a single aircraft movement.
The information gathered will be used to seek to gain a balance between the number of aircraft movements and the potential noise disturbance to the local environment.

Your complaint will be recorded and will be reported to the Noise Monitoring Sub Committee and the Liverpool John Lennon Airport Consultative Committee, which regularly reviews the scale and nature of noise complaints.
Planning and regeneration
The planning and future development of the airport is vitally important. Positive economic and social benefits need to be considered alongside environmental issues.
Liverpool John Lennon Airport has created and maintained jobs and increased inward investment and regeneration within the region. It has also raised the profile and opportunities within the area, which is particularly important as the Speke Halewood area is supported by Objective 1 funding.
Positive opportunities exist for further passenger, freight and mail growth. The growth and benefits this will bring will need to be accommodated with improved and enhanced infrastructure on site. This will be critical to the success of the airport.
