Helicopter noise in London
Written by Web Master   
Monday, 12 March 2007

The London Assembly’s Environment Committee has been investigating the issue of helicopter noise in London, focusing primarily on the following areas:

  • To establish what impact any increase in helicopter traffic and noise has had on Londoners and how this is being addressed;
  • To determine helicopter route-ing in London and to assess whether improvements can be made to the way helicopter air traffic is managed;
  • To establish the noise performance of helicopters typically used and the different types of helicopter use in London;
  • To examine the effectiveness of the three policies on helicopter noise in the Mayor’s Noise Strategy.


The Environment Committee obtained nearly 200 pieces of written evidence on environmental essay topics https://essaystore.net/environmental-essays-topics/ from a wide range of organisations and the public. The Committee held a meeting in public with expert witnesses on 13 July and visited Battersea Heliport and local residents on 25 July.  Its report, London in a spin, was published on 16 October 2006.
