About Us

Welcome to the LCYCC

The independent London City Airport Consultative Committee (LCYCC) first convened in 1987. Since then, LCY has grown into a bustling international airport bringing national and local benefits, as well as some downsides for nearby residents in terms of noise and congestion.

Our Purpose

The LCYCC is here to provide a positive, inclusive forum to discuss all aspects of the airport’s development and operations that impact airport users and people living/working in the surrounding area.

The committee meets quarterly and these meetings are open to the public. There are also two sub-committees – Community and Environment – which focus on issues including community engagement, airport development, noise and air quality.

Sound Insulation Scheme

London City Airport runs a 3-tier scheme offering sound insulation treatment to eligible residential properties which fall within specific ranges of noise:

Tier 1: For properties within the widest geographical area

Intermediate Tier: The second largest area (introduced in our APR 2017)

Tier 2: For properties closest to the airport

If a home is eligible, the sound insulation works involve treating habitable rooms (bedrooms, dining rooms, living rooms and kitchen diners) to upgrade external windows and doors. There is also the option to receive acoustic ventilation, in line with the sound insulation standards in the Noise Insulation Regulations. Treated properties are inspected every 10 years.

If a property has a separate freeholder and/or leaseholder, LCY need their permission before any work can begin.

If you’ve recently bought or rented an untreated property which you think may be eligible, please contact us at [email protected].
