NMB Reports

See below for abbreviated Noise Management Board reports

The Noise Management Board (NMB) was set up as a result of the Gatwick Independent Arrivals Review. The core role of the NMB is to develop, agree, oversee and maintain a co-ordinated noise management vision and subsequent strategies for Gatwick on behalf of stakeholder organisations. The main aim of this work is to reduce the impact of noise on the local community.


The Noise Management Board is made up of a wide range of industry experts and stakeholders. There are 13 seats on the Board, some of which are shared between a voting member and an alternate (back-up) member who have one vote and actively attend alternate meetings. The NMB has representation from the following members:

  • Gatwick Airport Ltd
  • Civil Aviation Authority
  • DfT
  • National Air Traffic Services
  • Air Navigation Solutions (the providers of air traffic services in the control tower at Gatwick)
  • Airlines
  • Chair of GATCOM (Gatwick Airport Consultative Committee)
  • East Sussex and West Sussex County Councils
  • Surrey and Kent County Councils
  • The High Weald Councils Aviation Action Group (HWCAAG ) and Association Parish Councils Action Group (APCAG)
  • Communities Against Gatwick Noise Emissions (CAGNE) and Plane Wrong
  • East Sussex Communities for Control of Aircraft Noise (ESCCAN) and Tunbridge Wells Anti Aircraft Noise Group (TWAANG)
  • Gatwick Obviously Not (GON) and People Against Gatwick Noise Emissions (PAGNE)
