There is a new petition regarding the concentrated flight paths from City Airport which everyone affected by the continual airplane noise can sign. It is at https://www.change.org/p/sadiq-khan-stop-the-concentrated-flight-paths-from-city-airport-over-east-london.
Back on 4th February 2016, concentrated flight paths were brought in to City Airport that have created noise ghettos in Bow, Leyton, Leytonstone, Wanstead, Redbridge, Barkingside and Collier Row. It has significantly decreased the quality of life of the affected residents. Consultations have revealed blanket opposition to the scheme, but City Airport have shown contempt to the local residents their business so severely affects and ignored calls for change.
The petition calls for London Mayor Sadiq Khan to take steps to stop the concentrated flight paths. He has spoken out against the concentrated flight paths that are making some Londoners’ lives’ a misery but he needs to take action rather than just words.
