All aerodromes are expected to communicate openly and effectively with their local communities and users of the airport. In practice, this generally means the creation of an Airport Consultative Committee (ACC). Government has produced guidance outlining how the ACC should operate.

The role of the Consultative Committee is to help provide a forum for discussing airport-related issues with those who may be affected. Typically, the Consultative Committee will include representatives of businesses that operate from the airport and key stakeholders in the local area and chaired by an independent chairperson.

The ACC make recommendations to the aerodrome management and other bodies, when appropriate, as well as being a place to reach collective understanding between interested groups about the nature of the aerodrome operation in the hope that issues can be resolved amicably.

When does the ACC Meet?

Meetings take place quarterly in January, April, July, and October and are held at The Hub, London Biggin Hill Airport.
