The Airport Consultative Committee (ACC), representing the interests of local authorities, resident groups, industry bodies and Airport users, plays a vital role as a communication channel between the Airport and its many stakeholders. It is our responsibility to ensure anyone who might be affected has an opportunity to comment on and shape our decisions. We understand that clarity and transparency are the keys to maintaining a positive dialogue with our community stakeholders. We are therefore committed to fully engaging with the ACC, recognising its role as a ‘critical friend’ and the primary channel for the formal expression of community views and concerns.
The Committee is constituted pursuant to Section 35(1) of the Civil Aviation Act 1982 (as amended) and its purpose is defined as: “For Birmingham Airport Ltd to consult on its societal, economic and environmental impacts with representatives of business, local communities and those using and working at the Airport, and for those representatives to monitor, challenge, inform and influence.”
The ACC is chaired independently by Colin Flack OBE, who also chairs the Liaison Group of UK ACCs, known as UKACC
