Heathrow Airport ran airspace trials from the end of August which were due to finish early, after pressure from the community, on the 12th November.  Despite Heathrow's claims that these trials have indeed finished, the flights paths have emphatically NOT returned to pre-trial heights, frequency or paths, thereby adversly affecting the quality of life of those living below.  Heathrow's own website states that "the Noise Preferential Routes (NPRs) have not been altered since they were established in order to give people the predictability of knowing where noise from departing planes will be heard. Their location remains the responsibility of the Government. As an airport operator, BAA has no authority to change them. Any significant changes to the NPRs would be subject to public consultation by the Government."
It is our assertion that these NPRs have been changed without any consultation or reference to anyone at all and must be changed back immediately.  Many of us had no audible flights whatsoever, with others only two or three per day.  If you agree and want your peaceful neighbourhood back, then ensure your voice is heard and sign the petition.  Please also share it with everyone you know, so that Heathrow, NATS and the CAA are unable to ignore us any longer.  The areas affected include, but are not limited, to the following areas: North and South Ascot, Sunninghill, Sunningdale, Cheapside, Windlesham, Bracknell, Lightwater, Bagshot, Sandhurst, Crowthorne, Warfield, Binfield, Crown Wood, Martins Heron, Forest Park, Owlsmoor, College Town, Finchamstead, Wokingham, Winnersh, Barkham, Woodley, Winkfield, Chavey Down & Teddington.
Thank you.
