How does Perth Airport work with the community to manage aircraft noise?

Perth Airport believes a key component of effective aircraft noise management is communication and community engagement.

Currently, there are several forums that provide the opportunity for community representatives to engage with Perth Airport.

We actively participate in the Perth Airports’ Municipalities Group (PAMG) which includes all Local Government authorities whose communities have an interest in the Airport.  The PAMG has proven to be an important means of engagement with local communities for over 30 years.

The Perth Airport Community Forum (PACF, formerly Community Aviation Consultation Group) works collaboratively to recognise and enhance:

  • the long-term sustainability and growth of Perth Airport,
  • our reputation as a responsible corporate citizen within the local and broader community, and
  • our role as a major economic contributor for Western Australia.

The Planning Coordination Forum (PCF) is a mechanism to foster high-level strategic discussions between the airport, the Commonwealth, State and Local Government representatives to promote better planning outcomes in relation to development of the airport in the context of the broader urban setting.

The Perth Aircraft Technical Noise & Environment Working Group (PANTWG), formerly the Perth Airport Aircraft Noise Management Consultative Committee, contributes to the successful management of the impact of aircraft noise.

The Airport Consultative Environment & Sustainability Group (ACES) brings together the major tenants on the Perth Airport estate and Government and environmental groups to inform and discuss relevant updates on development projects.

In addition to Perth Airport’s regular and ongoing engagement with communities through their elected representatives and other forums, Perth Airport reviews their Master Plan every five years which includes consultation with communities. For further information click here.
