26/07/2016 Heathrow update from Cllr. Tony Popham
It was agreed at the full council meeting on 20/07/16, that the leader would write to the Government on behalf of Elmbridge and Molesey residents based on my question to the leader. I have also asked that EBC rejoin LAANC “Local Authorities Aircraft Noise Council (which the Conservative administration stopped some 4 – 5 years ago to save £400 a year membership). So short sighted, EBC are currently the only local authority around Heathrow not to be a member of LAANC
The question to the leader –
Aircraft noise has been increasing over Elmbridge and Molesey due to the lower flight paths the Aircraft are taking. Also they are landing and taking off before and after the cut times. Take off no earlier than 6am and no later than 11pm and landing no earlier than 4.30 am and no later than 11pm.These rules are being are being ignored by Heathrow. Will the council on the behalf of the Residents write to our MP and to the PM letting them know this practice has to stop?
