In 2014 Flight Path trials brought unprecedented levels of aircraft noise. The Government is now trying to consult on, and approve a third runway without knowing or telling people where flight paths will be. 260,000 additional aircraft means the certain use of concentrated flight paths, the effects of which we experienced during the trials of 2014!

The introduction of concentration and Precision Based Navigation has brought many new communities into the noise footprint of Heathrow and many more may be yet to experience the same unwelcome increase in aircraft noise in the future.

It is therefore essential that we each take any practical steps we can to continue to oppose the threat of concentrated flight paths. Public responses to the consultation (closing date May 25th) are vital to prevent the noise levels of 2014 becoming permanent!

The Government has deliberately refused to hold public consultation events on its recommendation to expand Heathrow in this area - despite the fact it is aware of the current aircraft noise issues - a decision Cllr Mike Goodman (SCC) called ‘utterly perverse’ when he challenged the government’s decision to exclude Surrey Heath. The rushed consultation (details at www.gov.uk/dft/heathrow-airport-expansion) has been described by many as deeply flawed with vital information excluded.

The DfT is attempting to rush through an expansion consultation without any idea of where flight paths (and therefore noise and pollution) will be.   

AN3V has therefore organised a drop in event in order to provide information and Freepost Response Cards to be held:

Wednesday May 10th between 6pm and 9pm


Olive Room
St John's Church, Church Road,
Windlesham GU20 6BL

 

THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO EVERYONE  NOT JUST 3 VILLAGES.  
SO PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD AND ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO HAVE THEIR SAY!

There are many ways to respond to the consultation, in writing, online (see link below to Gov.uk)
However, a simple postcard with your comments is also acceptable and we shall be providing free cards for you at the event.
