Like other councils, we have no statutory responsibility for dealing with aircraft noise. However, we recognise the noise concerns residents have about Heathrow Airport, the possible future impacts of expansion plans at Heathrow and air space changes. We work with Surrey County Council and other Surrey authorities as part of Heathrow Strategic Planning Group representing residents’ concerns on the local environment on noise, air quality and sustainability. Elmbridge is also a member of Local Authorities Aircraft Noise Council. We will express your concerns through both groups. Reporting aircraft noise The government recommends residents direct aircraft noise complaints to the relevant airport, see Noise from planes on GOV.UK for more information. We encourage residents affected by noise to register complaints with Heathrow.
