Can the council deal with noise from aircraft?

How do you rate this information / service?

What we do with your feedback

No. The noise from aircraft has been specifically excluded from statutory nuisance legislation.

We do record complaints alleging excessive noise from aircraft for statistical purposes but are unable to action to control noise from this source.

Low flying or noisy military aircraft can be reported to the Ministry of Defence, Complaints and Enquiries, Unit Directorate of Air Staff Level 5, Zone H Main Building, Whitehall, London SW1A 2HB.

Oxford Airport at Kidlington operates a noise amelioration policy where details of how to complain about aircraft noise can be found.

Windrushers Gliding Club that fly from RAF Bicester operate a 'preferred route' policy for their flying activities.

For more details regarding the above, see 'Offsite Links' to the right of this page.
