Increased noise disturbance from Stansted airport flights
The Parish Council has received complaints from residents about noise and disturbance from increased flights out of Stansted, particularly early morning and late at night.
A change in flight path routes introduced in February 2016 has led to a doubling of flights to the east of the airport on the Clacton route with many more flights across the north of our parish.
For more information see SSE Guidance for NATS Departure Routes Change at Stansted here.
City Councillor Nicolette Chambers has emailed our MP, Sir Alan Haslehurst asking him to take up the case for us and we are also consulting with other affected Parish Councils.
The Goal is to have the change reversed at, or before, the official change review.
We need your help. Every single complaint counts and helps our cause. Stansted airport has switched off its Freephone complaints line and it is now a simple online process to complain.
It takes just a couple of minutes to complete the form available at –http://stopstanstedexpansion.com/noise_complaint_form.asp
This can be used to complain about specific noisy planes (where you need to give the date and time of the disturbance), or about the broader noise problem. Please do both.
Using the form via the Stop Stansted Expansion web site allows your complaint to be noted and used in their arguments, whilst also being forwarded to the Stansted Airport noise complaint team.
