London City Airport's planning application for expansion of its operations was rejected by LB Newham.

Newham rejected it on the grounds of noise and the reduction of the long-established weekend respite by extending flying hours to include all day Saturdays.

Expanded flight proposals would bring an increase in avoidable and unnecessary noise from low-level flights over our heads.

London City Airport has appealed and a Public Enquiry will decide whether London City will be permitted to expand operating hours to fly all day Saturdays.

Along with FHSoc and Hacan East we have engaged in resisting this expansion plan and continue to prepare material for our participation as a Rule 6 Party at the Inquiry. This is a way for Londoners under their low flight paths in SE London to try and stop it.

We need your assistance and are fund-raising to enable us to maximise the use of a leading barrister with our case.

Even a little helps - protect yourself from this avoidable increase in noise pollution.
