Cambridge Airport Consultative Committee

Description

The Marshall Airport Cambridge Consultative Committee was established to meet the DETR rules in 1997; however the forum has been in existence since 1982 when Marshall of Cambridge decided, as part of its work and contribution into the community, to establish a platform to enable communication and consultation between the airport, its users and the local community and provide details of business development and operation of the Airport to local people. Now operating to the Department for Transport (DfT) guidelines, the Committee, which is chaired by a local councillor, meets on a formally structured basis every six months with representation from a wide number of local interest groups including Local Residents’ Associations, City, County, District and Parish Councils, Airport Users, and Airport/ Company Management.

 

The Committee regularly receives and reviews records of aircraft complaints from members of the public as well as reviewing airport operations. Airport Licensing and Regulatory matters are the responsibility of the Civil Aviation Authority; however the Committee acts as an influencing body and encourages a close dialogue between the Airport and the local community. The Consultative Committee has worked with Airport Management to introduce a number of changes to aircraft operations which have reduced noise and disturbance to local people as part of the Company's Noise Amelioration Schemes, and this topic remains an important subject for the Airport and the Committee. The Airport and the Consultative Committee make regular contributions to DfT studies into the future of aviation.
