George Best Belfast City Airport Modified Planning Agreement
Published on Wed, 24 Jul 2019 by firstname.lastname@example.org.
On 22 July 2019, the Department for Infrastructure signed a new Modified Planning Agreement with George Best Belfast City Airport which will control operations at the Airport with immediate effect.
This Agreement endorses the recommendations of the Planning Appeals Commission independent report of the public inquiry. It establishes a more effective noise management system at the Airport and removes the Seats for Sale restriction. This should achieve a better balance between the socio-economic benefits of airport expansion and the need to protect the environment and quality of life for the surrounding community.
The Airport will be required to submit an Annual Performance Report by 31 March each year to the Department detailing the Airport’s compliance with all obligations and restrictions within the Agreement. If there has been any non-compliance or there is a risk of non-compliance of the noise control contour within the incoming years, the Airport shall agree actions with the Department to rectify the situation.
