APPLICATION DEADLINE EXTENDED FOR RESIDENTS' GROUPS WISHING TO JOIN BELFAST CITY AIRPORT COMMUNITY FORUM
The Belfast City Airport Forum, established in 1993, is a consultative body whose members represent local communities, public authorities, airport management and airport users.
The committee is not a decision-making body but an organised forum to inform the diverse range of stakeholders about issues relating to the development and operations of the airport and the aviation industry, and to seek feedback.
The Forum is currently inviting applications from residents’ organisations who wish to nominate a representative.
The successful nominees will represent their community on matters relating to the airport and must be able to attend at least three evening meetings a year at the airport.
Only members of organised groups, which have a constitution, elected office bearers and hold regular meetings including an Annual General Meeting, are eligible to apply. The group must have no political bias.
The Forum is seeking three members from East Belfast, one from South Belfast and three from Ards and North Down.
Representatives must be over 18 and have lived in the area they wish to represent for at least 12 months. They must be able to show that their group has the means to collect views, information and enquiries from members of the community in the catchment area and to report information back to the community from Forum meetings, consultations and airport updates.
Representatives are expected to serve a five-year term.
For an application form please contact the Forum Secretary, at [email protected].
Completed application forms and supplementary information should be returned no later than 5pm on Thursday 30 September 2021 by post or email to the following:
