Fines for noisy planes
Gatwick has a network of noise monitors around the airport to monitor the noise of departing planes at specific locations. Planes that break the noise limits are fined £500 by Gatwick Airport Ltd for the first 3dB over the limit and £1,000 above that.
We don't keep any of the money we raise from the fines. Instead we use it to support local community projects through the Gatwick Airport Community Trust . The Trust, which is independently-managed, supports local sports and arts initiatives focused on developing local youngsters. We’re also committed to environment conservation projects and supporting other community organisations and facilities.
Voluntary noise insulation schemes
In the past we have provided noise insulation – special double or secondary glazing. Our current scheme is under evaluation and we are developing plans for a new scheme. We will consult with the local community about our new scheme during 2013.
