FTF Call Out - Yes we will come and measure noise whilst visually recording it at your home!
We know that many of you are already taking noise recordings as part of the London21 Noise Monitoring Project.
But for those that aren't taking part in that project but who want to know just how noisy in db's the jets are that blight your lives we are offering to come to your home, workplace, park, street and take recordings with the video running. It would take about 10 minutes, you don't have to be identified if you don't wish to be, it won't cost you a penny and it will help us to build up more and more evidence on the negligence of noise management by Newham Council in regard to LCA activities.
So if you are interested, then just drop us a line and we'll get back to you soon.
LCA and LB Newham think a few selected roads with double glazing and motorised ventilation solves the problems - we know it doesn't and 1000's of people haven't had any noise management controls offered, let alone any monitoring. Now LCA go on and on about how they are such a great airport - and how they offer noise insulation at 57db rather than at the higher db rate offered by other airports. Well that would be all fine and dandy if their noise measurements were anywhere near accurate or reliable - and we know from the evidence in the Environmental Statement supplement that they are not.
We are going to make sure that from now on they satisfy all environmental/EU/town and country planning legislation that is in place to protect communities from pollution.
