Engaging Communities

As part of our ongoing commitment to the local community, we are dedicated to building and sustaining a positive dialogue with our neighbours: informing, involving, consulting and reporting back to them.

Community Investment Report 2013/14
Our annual Community Investment Report highlights the projects that we are involved in, from engaging with local communities to inspiring young people and more.

Meet the team
Community Outreach events are part of the airport’s commitment to engage with the local community. They allow local residents to drop in and meet airport colleagues, ask any questions or voice any concerns.

Whether you want to know more about the work experience programme, our commitment to the environment, our onsite art projects or how to apply for the Community Fund or sponsorship, the Community Relations team will be on hand to help. Please see below for 2015 outreach dates.

Our newsletter
Community Flyer is our newsletter, distributed to over 33,000 homes in the areas surrounding the airport. It provides the latest information on our community, environmental and business initiatives and is designed to keep local residents informed of what’s happening at the airport.

Independent Consultative Committee
The Independent Consultative Committee (ICC) is the formal body in charge of liaison between East Midlands Airport and our neighbouring communities. It operates according to Government guidelines and representatives from local authorities, amenity and user groups meet on a quarterly basis.

According to the Liaison Group of UK Airport Consultative Committees, an ICC seeks to hold the precarious balance between the interests of civil aviation, of passengers and other users of the airport and of people living in the area, and of the local environment. Read more about our ICC meetings.

OnSite Network
The East Midlands Airport OnSite Network was set up in April 2010 to encourage networking between the many companies that are based on the site. The airport is a community in its own right and the network is aimed at bringing that community together.

The network meets quarterly and gives members the opportunity to share best practice and ideas, and where possible pool resources for a greater outcome.
