This is part of a heartfelt letter we received from a resident in Catford
"The main issue for concern has been the concentration of the flight paths over my house in Catford.
I can’t begin to express my frustration as when we bought the house last year this was not a publicly known issue. Of course, as there was no direct consultation with the residents this would affect, we had no idea it was happening until it actually started.
This warm weekend just gone exemplified the problem. Trying to sit out in the garden or leave windows open has been spoiled by jet after jet flying directly overhead. Working from home yesterday, a colleague on the phone asked me, in all seriousness, which airport I was at!"
