PUBLIC MEETING ON CONCENTRATED FLIGHT PATHS
Len Duvall, the London Assembly member for Lewisham and Greenwich, will speak at a Public Meeting, organized by campaign group HACAN East, in Catford on Wednesday 7th December (1) to discuss the controversial new flight paths London City Airport introduced earlier this year. The airport narrowed its flight paths so they are now all concentrated over particular communities rather than being more dispersed as they were previously. Particularly badly hit are North-East London and parts of South London. The areas impacted in South London include Eltham, Lee, Catford, Dulwich, Brixton, Stockwell and Vauxhall. London City Airport will be reviewing its flight paths in 2017.
HACAN East chair John Stewart said, “This meeting is another chance for people to show the opposition there is to these concentrated flight paths and to put renewed pressure on City Airport to look again at them.”
