What you can do to keep the pressure up on London City Airport
Dec 7, 2014 — Hi everyone,
City Airport very clearly failed to consult the residents who will be affected by its plans before the closing date of the consultation. Now it’s time to take action – if we work together, we can win this.
What can you do?
1. Write to the Civil Aviation Authority to object to how the consultation was carried out. This is now the most important activity – a template you can use is on HACAN's website: tinyurl.com/kpb428w. Feel free to adapt it (it will have the most impact if you use your own words) but don’t worry about copying it straight if you’re short on time or inspiration! The key thing to remember is to focus on your concerns with how the consultation was carried out, rather than why you disagree with the actual proposals.
Send your email to this address: firstname.lastname@example.org or alternatively you can mail it to:
Airspace Business Coordinator,
Safety & Airspace Regulation Group,
CAA House, 45 – 59 Kingsway,
London, WC2B 6TE
2. If you haven't already, follow us on social media. You can add us as a friend on Facebook (we’re ‘Flight Path Changes’) or follow @PathChanges on Twitter. We’ll post the latest updates to both Twitter and Facebook and we are planning more activity on Twitter which you can get involved in so if you’re not already signed up to Twitter, then this could be a good reason to give it a go!
3. Tell your neighbours – as City Airport won’t do this then it’s really down to us to make as many people aware as possible. You can help by talking to your neighbours directly, or following us on Twitter and retweeting us. Also, if you’re a member of a local community group then tell them about the campaign!
As ever, many thanks for your support,
Adam & Eleanor
