Environment and Community

Coventry Airport, part of Regional and City Airports (RCA), recognises it has a duty of care to the communities affected by its day-to-day operations.

RCA is committed to being a good neighbour and reducing the impact it has on these communities and the environment. The Coventry Airport team takes these obligations very seriously and operates a number of measures to ensure it can meet and surpass all environmental legislation.

Aircraft Noise complaints

Notifiable Obstruction 

Working, building and events in the vicinity of an Airport can present significant risks if not managed responsibly by developers.  This can include events using fireworks / lighting / sky lanterns, construction sites and drone flying.

As a result, we always encourage you to communicate with us should the activity fall within at least 6km of the airfield.

If the activity or development requires the use of lifting equipment, mobile or tower cranes, they should be operated in accordance with British Standard 7021 and CAA Publication - CAP 1096.  The Airport should be notified of plans to erect these cranes at least 21 days in advance.  

Please click here to inform us of your notifiable activity (events using fireworks / lighting / sky lanterns, construction sites wishing to use lifting equipment, mobile or tower cranes).  

NOTE: Do not proceed with your operation of a Crane or tall obstruction equipment until permission has been granted.

Further guidance on cranes near aerodromes can be found here: CAA Guidance to crane users
