London City Airport & CAA - Reverse the decision to concentrate flight paths

We, the undersigned, are calling upon London City Airport and the Civil Aviation Authority to scrap the concentration of flight paths over selected communities across London - these include Bow, Leyton, Leytonstone, Wanstead, Redbridge, Barkingside and  Collier Row. We believe these changes – that came in on 4th February 2016 – have created noise ghettos in our communities and significantly decreased the quality of life of the residents.

The consultation runs until February 2017, at which point the CAA will review and publish their decision in May 2017.

A detailed explanation of what has changed, the wider area impacted, and why this petition is important, can be found in HACAN East's guide here:
