Heathrow Noise Update

A letter has gone out to constituents in response to queries about what is being done to tackle the airspace changes, that have increased noise over parts of the constituency.

The focus is:

1.   Pressing for a consultation on, and change to, NATs Guidance on airspace strategy.

2.   Asking for NATs to have responsibility for the level of ground noise imposed by aircraft

3.   Urging the use of Performance Based Navigation (PBN) to mitigate noise

4.   Calling for air traffic controllers to monitor flights up to 7,000 ft, rather than just 4,000 ft.
