First East London Aircraft Noise Forum - Great Minds Share Ways Forward

Yesterday, at the House of Commons, the first 'East London Aircraft Noise Forum' was held.

The forum was hosted by Lee Scott MP, Ilford North and organised by Fight the Flights in alliance with HACAN. The forum's focus is to discuss and plan positive ways in which elected officials can work together on the issue of aircraft noise and how it impacts on their constituents. Ideas were shared on issues regarding the problem of increasing aircraft noise and changing flight paths over east London from London City Airport and also Heathrow flights.

The forum plans to meet on a regular basis in the future, by invitation to elected officials only.
