Noise Action Plan for Brisbane available for community feedback


Airservices Australia is hosting community engagement sessions across Brisbane to discuss new flightpath change options to reduce the impact of current over-water operations on bayside communities, as well as night-time operations on legacy runway communities.

Residents are encouraged to attend 13 Noise Action Plan for Brisbane drop-in sessions throughout April and May here, as some of the new flightpath options to be discussed with the community shift aircraft operations across various suburbs.

Where feasible, Airservices has designed options to travel over green space and less-populated areas, but it is not possible to avoid all communities.

The sessions are the first of many that will be held as Airservices works to deliver the recommendations of the Noise Action Plan for Brisbane.

Airservices Australia Chief Executive Officer Jason Harfield said any proposed flightpath changes were subject to extensive community engagement prior to implementation.

“These community engagement sessions will help Airservices identify preferred options for further investigation and potential implementation,” Mr Harfield said.

“Airservices wants to ensure it is a transparent process, which demonstrates the organisation’s commitment to improving noise outcomes for the Brisbane community, where safe and operationally feasible.  

“I urge the Brisbane community to get involved.”
