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.
