I met the Heathrow management again at Conference. I told them there are still many complaints about the more persistent and loud aircraft noise Wokingham is now suffering.
They said their records showed that once they ended the trials of new routes prematurely following our complaints, they thought air traffic movements had gone back to normal. They now realised that people do not agree that have to live under the flight paths. They now think that maybe individual air traffic controllers are deciding to route more planes on the same routes, concentrating the noise over Wokingham and Bracknell.
They agreed to take this up with NATs to see if air traffic controls have changed and if this can be changed again to take it back to the situation prior to the trials. I too will pursue it again with Ministers and NATs.
