Aircraft Noise Community Consultative Group

The Aircraft Noise Community Consultative Group (ANCCG) was set up under the conditions of Auckland Airport’s designation in the Auckland Council Unitary Plan. It is an independently chaired group that makes recommendations to Auckland Airport on aircraft noise issues and concerns that arise from the airport’s operations and activities.


The ANCCG is tasked with:

  • identifying community concerns regarding aircraft noise
  • cooperatively formulating and proposing rules and procedures to minimise aircraft noise impact on the surrounding community
  • assisting and advising Auckland Airport in the dissemination of relevant information to the community
  • assisting Auckland Airport in the preparation of a Noise Management Plan
  • monitoring noise levels and compliance with the noise abatement procedures and Noise Management Plan; and
  • accessing appropriate technical expertise and guidance as required.

The group is made up of representatives from Auckland Council and its Local Boards, the Board of Airline Representatives New Zealand (BARNZ), Airways New Zealand, Auckland Airport, the business community and Tangata Whenua.
