Aviation noise

I held a meeting this week with the Secretary of State for Transport to draw his attention to the long going complaints of constituents about the changes made to flightpaths over the constituency in 2014 and the resulting increase in noise. Discussions included an agenda for lowering the noise of flights generally, where he was sympathetic to any measure which can improve the noise position for people on the ground. For example, if more flights are slowed down before arrival in the UK so they can land without joining a stack, noise and disruption will be reduced and fuel saved.

I also stressed the need to review the current concentration of flights under the revised procedures. I will follow up with a written submission.
