Since 2014 the Government and Heathrow and Nats and CAA have pursued a policy of narrowing the flight paths in order to affect 'fewer people'. Those who are still affected are now far worse off, with constant planes from 6am until 11.30pm, and some even during the night. Houses shake, the ground shakes, and that's SIX MILES from the take-off point.
We ask two things:.
1. That the concentrated flight paths are removed and we return to the previous situation where noise was shared, and far less obtrusive.
2. That planes are forced to take of at an angle of at least 8% until 6 miles out, meaning that they will be far higher and the pollution and noise effects will be far lower.
It hardly needs to be said - we do not want Heathrow expanded which will only make the problem far worse. Please sign and share!

I have sent this petition through to various individuals in the hope that they will take some notice of it. You will note that we are still getting signers, as recently as in the last month. Please remember it is here and get others to sign it so that instead of merely whinging about the planes they can actually have done something to try to stop them.
Some judicial reviews are soon due to be heard, including one from a Teddington man (in TAG). Let us pray there is success.

Thank you to all who have signed so far. Please encourage others to sign too. The news today was very disappointing, as is some of the content of official documents put out with it where we are now no longer promised a night flight ban, merely told that we might get one.
If we can get it to 1,000, mostly from this area, I am sure that our wonderful Mr Speaker could use it to cause fabulous mischief, and so could one or two nearby MPs.

Thank you all for signing. Please share it, and encourage others to sign.
I appreciate the strength of feeling caused by Heathrow, but please avoid bad language.
