    Story

    Weekend relief from aircraft noise is again under attack from London City Airport

    HACAN East is a campaign group of mostly Londoners concerned about the noise and environmental impacts of London City Airport. For many years we have campaigned against the expansion of London City Airport with its increasing numbers of low flying jet aircraft, extra noise and pollution, and all that means for Londoners and our peaceful enjoyment of homes, parks and gardens. We focus particularly though not exclusively on the airport's noise impact on overflown London.

    The Airport wants permission to allow planes to fly on Saturdays until early evening; to take away a valued period of peace and quiet for countless Londoners; to allow more early morning flights and to increase passengers from 6.5m to 9m per year.

    At HACAN East, we think that the airport has expanded enough. We think that a 24 hour weekend break from their aircraft from Saturday lunchtime to Sunday lunchtime is a minimum requirement for all our sakes. Ending would be a very poor choice for overflown Londoners We would never get this quiet period back once conceded.

    The airport is appealing against a planning decision by its home Borough, Newham, to reject these proposals. HACAN East will appear at the Planning Inquiry, making as strong a case as we can alongside Newham to halt this in its tracks.

    We are unpaid volunteers; we do this because we think it matters. To work with us to develop and present our best possible case to the Inquiry, we have engaged expert legal counsel and we will also call expert witnesses to help argue our case. Even with considerable goodwill from our legal friends, this comes with costs.

    Your donation will help us to meet the expenses of our legal team and other costs incurred by HACAN East as we progress our presentations to the Inquiry. Time is important - the Public Inquiry is in December and we are working with our legal team right now to build our case.

    Thank you so much for supporting this. We are determined to do our very best to represent the peace and quiet belonging to overflown residents of London, and your donation, of any amount, will help us to do just that.
