Description of the various consultative bodies and their missions

 

ADVISORY ENVIRONMENT COMMISSION


Composition :

The Members of the Consultative Committee on the Environment are split into three colleges with nine full and nine deputy members each:

  • Local authorities (representatives of the Alsace region, the Lower Rhine department, the Urban Community of Strasbourg and the municipalities affected by the noise);
  • Aviation industry (representatives of the airport personnel, airport users, the Strasbourg Airport);
  • Associations (representatives of environment-protection associations and community associations).



The Director of the Civil Aviation Authority, North East, the Regional Environment Director and the Departmental Infrastructure Director are present at the meetings but do not have voting rights.

The Commission is chaired by the Prefect of the Alsace and Lower Rhine Region. The Strasbourg Airport is responsible for secretariat duties.

All major issues relating to the effect of the airport on the areas affected by noise are referred to the Advisory Environment Commission. And, more broadly, it is informed by the airport's total environmental protection policy.

PERMANENT COMMITTEE OF THE ADVISORY ENVIRONMENT COMMISSION


Composition :
The Permanent Committee is the working body of the Advisory Environment Commission and is organised according to the same methods. It is smaller in size, but its composition reflects that of the Commission:

  • 3 members and 3 substitute members selected from the College of Local Authorities;
  • 3 members and 3 substitute members selected from the College of the Aviation Industry;
  • 3 members and 3 substitute members selected from the College of Associations.


The Director of the Civil Aviation Authority, North East, the Regional Environment Director and the Departmental Infrastructure Director are present at the meetings but do not have voting rights.

The Committee is chaired by the Prefect of the Alsace and Lower Rhine department. Strasbourg Airoport is responsible for secretariat duties.

This commission also constitutes the Watchdog Committee for the Environmental Charter.

 

NEIGHBOURHOOD COMMISSION


Composition :
The Neighbourhood Commission was created under the memorandum of understanding entitled ÒFor sustainable development of the airport, at the service of regional business, in favour of the quality of life of the community that was adopted on February 2nd 1998 by the Advisory Environment Committee (see section 1). It is made up equally of two colleges:

  • Representatives of the neighbouring communities (mayors of municipalities close to the airport and chairmen of community associations);
  • Representatives of the aviation industry (Strasbourg Airport, Civil Aviation Authority, North-East, airlines, tour operators, airport personnel).

Under the parity arrangements, it is co-chaired by a member of each of the two colleges. Strasbourg Airport is responsible for secretarial duties.

 

Under the memorandum of understanding, the main tasks of the Neighbourhood Commission are:

  • To ensure that the provisions of the memorandum are implemented and enforced;
  • To advise on requests for landing between 5 and 6 a.m.;

The prerogatives of this Commission, which played a vital role in drawing up the memorandum of understanding, have been gradually taken over by the Advisory Environment Commission.  The Neighbourhood Commission has not met since 2003. This natural development illustrates the success of the consultation processes put into place at the airport.

Composition :
The Advisory Commission for Assistance to the Community is an advisory body to which matters are referred during the phase of preparation of the Noise Nuisance Plan and for the attribution of soundproofing assistance provided to the members of the community around the airport, in the areas covered by the plan.

The composition of the Advisory Commission for Assistance to the Community around Strasbourg Airport has been defined by a ruling from the Prefect dated August 16th 2005. It includes the following, under the chairmanship of the Prefect of the Alsace and Lower Rhine Region:

  • The Lower Rhine Prefecture;
