Aircraft Noise Ombudsman
The Aircraft Noise Ombudsman (ANO) conducts independent reviews of Airservices Australia's management of aircraft noise-related activities, including the handling of complaints or enquiries made to Airservices Australia about aircraft noise, the community consultation processes related to aircraft noise and the presentation and distribution of aircraft noise-related information.
In December 2010 the Federal Government made amendments to the Airports Act 1996 which strengthen the requirements for airport master plans. The Government released these guidelines to assist airports in meeting the new requirements.
