We are advised that two public consultation events are taking place to hear Heathrow Airport’s plans for noise compensation should it get the go-ahead for a third runway. This is very short notice as these meetings are taking place on:
Saturday 20 September: 10am to 4pm at Datchet Village Hall, 3 Allen Way, Datchet Village, SL3 9HR
Wednesday 24 September: 2pm to 9pm at Old Windsor Day Centre, 27B Straight Road, Old Windsor, SL4 2RW.
These meeting are not, as we understand it, about the current flight path trials taking place over Ascot, Sunninghill, Sunningdale and Cheapside, which many residents are up in arms about. But you may still wish to attend to learn more about Heathrow’s plans, ask questions and to highlight the impact that additional aircraft noise is having on quality of life in our area.
Our MP and local Councillors are very aware of the strength of feeling in the local community about these flight path trials and we’re told they are close to setting a date for a public meeting so that residents can ask questions of Heathrow Airport about these. We’ll inform you of the date as soon as we know it.
In the meantime, if any individuals or groups wish to comment or complain we suggest you contact HACAN ClearSkies, a “campaigning organisation for those under the Heathrow flightpath”, at hacan.org.uk or Heathrow Airport action website:heathrowairport.com/noise.
You can also email the department that deals with noise complaints at Heathrow: Noise_complaints@heathrow.com. Note that you must include your full name and address when doing so.
