On Monday 26th March Helena Paul of Edinburgh Airport Watch presented to a packed Kabin her detailed account of the flawed nature of Edinburgh Airport's proposed airspace changes. Louise Gunstensen who hosted the meeting and represents our community at the recently inaugurated Noise Advisory Board funded by but independent of the Airport, then told the meeting how Edinburgh Airport's proposal submitted to the CAA last year included a significant increase to the number of flights over or near Dalgety Bay and surrounding area when there is an east wind, compared with the consultation in 2017. The location of the route has also changed. The proposed Route E in an east wind will have up to 111 flights per day (by 2024), although the airport said 41 in its consultation. The route will operate from 0600 - 2300. In addition, the proposed Route D in a west wind (completely new route) will operate between 0600 and 1000, meaning that every day of the year Dalgety Bay and surrounding areas will receive noise from departing flights from 6am.

 

Despite there being material changes to the application from the proposals the airport consulted on in 2017, there are no plans to re-consult with residents on the amended proposals.

 

Both Louise and Helena then spoke of different approaches to trying to get the proposals rejected by the CAA and as a start, urged residents to seek the support of our parliamentary representatives in opposing the changes that were submitted after the consultation last year. This is very straightforward by going online to  https://www.writetothem.com
