So we are now waiting to see if Newham manage to exert their usual level of maladministration in considering the planes suitability to fly in and out of LCA. Of course, even though LCA and Newham don't bother about noise levels - they are both quick to say that LCA operates under very strict guidelines. Oh yes? We can't find any evidence of that over the past 7 years in Bickerdyke Allen Partners report. Apparently Newham didn't even realise that LCA hadn't been taking actual noise readings until a local resident alerted them to the fact just a few months ago. Oh the levels they will stoop to!
So, are residents to look forward to the A318 test runs being noise measured accurately, or just estimated from a technical data manual? We can't possibly imagine why LCA would start to follow the rules now, after breaking them for so many years, can you? The LCACC would also have to wake up and face the facts then too, and that wouldn't do at all.
